Queen's Award For Export Achievement - History

History

The Queen's Award to Industry, the scheme's original title, was instituted by Royal Warrant in 1965, and first awarded in 1966, and it was only offered to organizations. The recommendations of a review in 1975 led to the scheme becoming The Queen's Awards for Export and Technology, with separate awards for outstanding achievement in each of the two fields. The Queen's Award for Environmental Achievement was added in 1992. Following a review in 1999, chaired by Charles, Prince of Wales, the three separate Awards were replaced and are now known generically as The Queen's Awards for Enterprise with three broad-based categories for organizations: International Trade, Innovation and Sustainable Development. In 2005, the individual award, The Queen's Award for Enterprise Promotion (QAEP) was added to the programme.

In 1990 a set of commemorative stamps featuring the Queens Awards for Enterprise was issued by the Post Office.
