UK sanctions on South Sudan

This page provides guidance on the UK’s sanctions regime on South Sudan, if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.

The UK is leaving the EU. This page tells you about sanctions regimes after Brexit if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, and will be updated if anything changes.

The South Sudan sanctions regime

The South Sudan (Sanctions) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 are intended to ensure that certain sanctions measures relating to South Sudan, which are currently in force in the UK under EU legislation and related UK regulations, continue to operate effectively after the UK leaves the EU.

This sanctions regime gives effect to the UK’s obligations under United Nations Security Council resolutions 2206 and 2428 and aims to bring peace, stability and an end to the conflicts in South Sudan. When these regulations come into force they will replace, with substantially the same effect, relevant existing EU legislation and related UK regulations.
