The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) sanctions regime
The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (Sanctions) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 are intended to ensure that certain sanctions measures relating to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, 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 1718 (2006), 1874 (2009), 2087 (2013), 2094 (2013), 2270 (2016), 2321 (2016), 2356 (2017), 2371(2017), 2375(2017), and 2397 (2017). It aims to restrict the ability of the DPRK to carry on banned programmes, promoting the abandonment by the DPRK of banned programmes and the decommissioning of the DPRK’s banned weapons. It also aims to promote peace, security and stability on the Korean peninsula. When these regulations come into force they will replace, with substantially the same effect, relevant existing EU legislation and related UK regulations.
