Financial Sanctions: Somalia

Friday, 12 January 2018

On 11 January 2018 the following Order and Regulations came into operation –

  • European Union (Somalia Sanctions) (Application) (Amendment) Order 2018 [SD 2018/0016]
  • Somalia Sanctions (Amendment) Regulations 2018 [SD 2018/0017]

The Order applies Council Regulation (EU) 2017/2415, as part of Island law, subject to certain modifications.

Council Regulation (EU) 2017/2415 amends Article 4(1) of Regulation (EU) 356/2010 which provides an exemption from the asset freeze and from the prohibition on making funds available in relation to the delivery of humanitarian assistance in Somalia. The amendment makes reference to the “United Nations Humanitarian Response Plan for Somalia”.

The Regulations amend the Somalia Sanctions Regulations 2010 (“the principal Regulations”), to take account of the amendment to Council Regulation (EU) 356/2010.

An amended version of Sanctions Notice 31 will be available on the Customs and Excise website in due course.
