Consultation description

Sanctions are an important foreign policy and national security tool. As a permanent member of the UN Security Council the UK plays a leading role in negotiating sanctions with global reach to counter threats to international peace and security.

The UK currently implements UN and other multilateral sanctions regimes through EU legal acts. Once we leave the EU, we will need new legal powers to maintain our ability to impose, implement and amend sanctions regimes.

We welcome feedback from all stakeholders to help inform the design of the UK’s future sanctions legal framework.
