UK exports £8m worth of historic photographs

Over the period 1 May 2011-30 April 2012 1378 photographs valued at £8,671,367 were licensed for export after reference to expert advisers. These are photographs that might have been sold at auction, through a dealer or privately and which would require an export licence under the Waverley criteria.

For an Open General Export Licence the threshold for 'A photographic positive or negative or any assemblage of such photographs over 50 years of age' is £10,000. Within the EU the threshold is £13,045
