Financial sanctions targets by regime

This page lists all financial sanctions imposed in the UK by country, administration or terrorist group.

Financial sanctions which relate to a specific country or terrorist group are known as ‘regimes’. You can find the specific regulations and designated persons for each regime imposed in the UK on the pages below.

What is prohibited under each financial sanction depends on the financial sanction regulation. Regulations are imposed by the:

  • United Nation’s Security Council – the UK is a member so automatically imposes all financial sanctions created by the UN.
  • European Union – as a member of the EU, the UK imposes all financial sanctions created by the EU.
  • UK Government – a small number of financial sanctions are created by the UK Government.
