Current list of designated persons, ISIL (Da'esh) and Al-Qaida organisations

The ISIL (Da'esh) and Al-Qaida organisations are currently subject to financial sanctions. This document contains a current list of designated persons.


UN Security Council Resolution 1267 (1999) and subsequent related Resolutions requires all member states to freeze the assets, prevent the entry into or the transit through their territories, and prevent the direct or indirect supply, sale and transfer of arms and military equipment with regard to any individual or entity associated with ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaida, Usama bin Laden and/or the Taliban as designated by the relevant Sanctions Committee.

By Resolution 1988 (2011) the Security Council split the sanctions regime into two groups - an Al-Qaida regime and a country-specific Afghanistan regime.

The UN measures are implemented in the EU by Council Regulation (EC) No 881/2002, which is enforced in the UK by The Al-Qaida (Asset-Freezing) Regulations 2011.
