Friday, 28 December 2012

This news release is issued in respect of the restrictive measures against Iran.

Following the publication of Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1264/2012 in the Official Journal of the European Union, the Council of the European Union has amended Annex IX to Council Regulation (EU) No 267/2012 ['the 2012 Regulation'], with effect from 22 December 2012.

Annex IX to the 2012 Regulation lists persons, entities and bodies identified by the Council under Article 23(2) of that Regulation as subject to the financial sanctions imposed by that Regulation.

One individual and 18 entities have been added to Annex IX, 2 entities removed, and amendments to the identifying information of 3 existing entries in Annex IX.
