Leaving the EU with a deal remains the government’s top priority. This has not changed. However a responsible government must plan for every eventuality, including a no deal scenario.
The UK currently implements EU and UN sanctions through EU legislation and related UK regulations.
The information on this page applies after EU exit if the UK leaves the EU without a deal. It will be updated if a deal is agreed.
The international counter-terrorism sanctions regime
The Counter-Terrorism (International Sanctions) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 are intended to provide for part of the UK’s counter-terrorism sanctions regimes after the UK leaves the EU. They aim to further the prevention of terrorism in the UK and elsewhere by bringing together elements of several existing sanctions regimes.
This sanctions regime also gives effect to the UK’s obligations under UN Security Council Regulation 1373. When these regulations come into force, they will replace, with substantially the same effect, relevant existing EU legislation and related UK regulations.
