Guinea-Bissau sanctions: guidance

Guidance to accompany the Republic of Guinea-Bissau (Sanctions) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019



Leaving the EU with a deal remains the government’s top priority. This has not changed. However a responsible government must plan for every eventuality, including a no deal scenario.

The UK currently implements EU and UN sanctions through EU legislation and related UK regulations.

The information on this page applies after EU exit if the UK leaves the EU without a deal. It will be updated if a deal is agreed.

This guidance assists people in implementing and complying with the Guinea-Bissau (Sanctions) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019. It covers the prohibitions and requirements imposed by the regulations. It also provides guidance on best practice for:

  • complying with the prohibitions and requirements
  • enforcing them
  • circumstances where they do not apply

This guidance should be read alongside more detailed sanctions guidance published by the Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI).
