About UKTI DSO

The aim of UK Trade & Investment Defence & Security Organisation (UKTI DSO) is to help UK companies to export.

UKTI DSO works with industry to build and maintain relationships with overseas customers, providing the essential government-to-government interaction. As well as providing support to ensure products and services are promoted in an effective manner, they also make certain customer’s requirements are appropriately met and supported by industry throughout the life of the equipment.

UKTI DSO provides specialist export advice and practical assistance, working closely with both industry and the Ministry of Defence and Other Government Department’s and Agencies.

UKTI DSO operates three regional directorates. They are experts in their particular geographic areas and are the first point of contact for overseas customers and for UK companies. They lead on all matters relating to the export of defence and security equipment and services, and support specific industry-led overseas marketing campaigns.

The security directorate acts as a co-ordinating focal point for companies in the security industry. They provide support to the regional directorates and work closely with industry to promote the UK Security Industry Marketing Strategy and brand that enhances company led marketing activity.

The Business Development Directorate is responsible for events and exhibitions management, market analysis and support for SME companies and Key Account Management. Business Development works in conjunction with the other directorates to help UKTI DSO deliver efficient and effective services to industry.

UKTI DSO works alongside the UK regional International Trade Advisors (ITAs) who advise and guide UK companies on their route to export and help them to use the full range of UKTI DSO services including in-country specialists. UKTI DSO also engages closely with industry bodies and trade associations to help the industry.
