Sanctions include a range of financial or trading restrictions, such as freezes on the assets of and travel restrictions on nominated individuals, bans on financing of state-owned enterprises, prohibitions on the supply of technical, financial and other assistance and outright prohibitions on trade.

Economic, trade or financial sanctions are imposed by governments or the United Nations to exert pressure on individuals or political regimes and for the advancement of foreign policy objectives. In the UK, a person or firm who breaches the terms of a sanction is guilty of a criminal offence.

The most important sanctions are those imposed by the US government and the EU. EU sanctions are typically imposed through Council Regulations, which have immediate legal effect in member states (including the UK). In the US and the EU, sanctions often implement measures contained in Resolutions of the United Nations Security Council.

Sanctions can be applied unilaterally or collectively and different rules will apply to each sanctions regime. Some of these sanctions affect designated individuals only in the targeted country. There are also sanctions in place against named individuals or entities who are:

  • related or belong to the Taliban and the Al-Qa’ida network
