International Import Certificates
It is normal practice for a UK individual or company intending to import controlled goods from another COCOM (Coordinating Committee) member country to apply for an International Import Certificate (IIC) at the request of the Licensing Authority of the country of export. An IIC constitutes an undertaking by the importer to import the goods into the country of destination, without diversion or trans-shipment elsewhere, and not to re-export the goods without an export license from the Licensing Authority in the country of importation. It is also an assurance from the Government of that country that it will control any subsequent export of those goods.
