Invitation – have your say on a replacement for SPIRE, Wednesday 13 January 2016

The Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) is leading a project to create a cross-government digital platform for import and export licensing. This is intended to replace the current SPIRE system.

There has already been a high degree of participation from industry, but they would like to present their initial findings as to what the platform could look like, and how your user experience can be improved. It is important to get a range of views from individuals, small, medium and large companies as well as trade associations and others that use their licensing service.

Accordingly, they would like to invite you to attend a workshop to listen to your feedback and create a service that can greater benefit industry:
