PLEASE REMEMBER - FROM THE END OF JUNE 07, IT WILL NOT BE POSSIBLE TO SUBMIT SIEL APPLICATIONS VIA THE INTERNET (i.e. THROUGH ELVISWEB).
In designing SPIRE, we have looked to address the majority of issues raised to us as ‘areas to improve’ in our current systems and processes.
As a result, SPIRE should feel intuitive to use and have consistent questions across the different applications (wherever possible). It will provide facilities that make applying for licences far more straightforward and will reduce the risk of errors being introduced through the need to transcribe paper forms. It will also mean that licences cannot possibly be lost anymore as paper licences will not be issued, only electronic licences.
At the highest level, SPIRE will work as follows:
To help answer the many questions we think you may have, we have produced a comprehensive set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about SPIRE. Hopefully these will answer the majority of questions you may have. The FAQs will be updated as we are able to provide you with more information. We will also provide regular updates on SPIRE through the Notices to Exporters e-mails, through the website and through inserts that will go out with any licences we issue.
The links on the right will soon include guidance on how to register yourself or organisation on SPIRE (function available from 6 August 2007), how to enable pop-ups so SPIRE can work better for you and how to register of OGLs and the CGEA on SPIRE (function also available from 6 August 2007).
