UK sanctions regimes
This page provides information on UK sanctions regimes currently in force. This includes regimes under the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2018 (the Sanctions Act) and under other UK legislation such as the Export Control Order 2008 and the Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001.
A regime is a collection of sanctions measures put in place for a particular set of purposes. Regimes can be either ‘thematic’ (relating to a particular issue), or ‘geographic’ (relating to a particular country or region).
