The Import Licensing Branch (ILB) controls the importation of certain sensitive goods into the UK. It does this by issuing import licences to companies who wish to bring controlled goods into the UK from overseas. ILB maintains records of licence applications on its electronic licence application system ("SPIRE") and on its document management system ("Matrix").
