Friday, 10 August 2018

The Treasury announces that the above Order has been made and will come into effect on 14 August 2018.

The Order applies in Island law the Export Control (Burma Sanctions)(No 2) Order 2018 (“ the applied Order”) which provides for the enforcement of new trade restrictions against Burma, prohibiting amongst other things, the export of dual-use goods, technology, software, and the provision of telecommunications, internet monitoring or interception services that might be used for internal repression.

The applied Order creates further offences and penalties for breaches of Council Regulation (EU) 401/2013, as it has effect in the Island. It also makes provision for the granting of licences by the Treasury permitting, in accordance with the regime, certain trade activities which would otherwise be prohibited by it.
