The updated information warns that in the event of a no deal, the Arts Council England will no longer be able to issue any EU licenses after October 31st, regardless of when they were submitted. Instead, applications will need to be submitted or resubmitted as a UK export licence form.

In the event of a no deal, a UK license will be required to export items of cultural relevance to anywhere else in the world, including the EU. There will no longer be a need to apply for an EU license.
