Details

These documents set out the results of a review required by Article 9 of the Export Control (Belarus) and (Syria Amendment) Order 2011, which implements EU trade sanctions. The review was designed to check if:

  • the regulations had achieved their original objectives
  • the regulations’ objectives were still valid
  • the regulations were still required or could be improved to reduce the burden on business and its overall costs

This Order will be revoked and replaced when an equivalent instrument is laid under the forthcoming Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act. The Act will give the UK the necessary legal powers to continue to implement sanctions and introduce tough new measures post-Brexit. This will enable us to maintain existing sanctions regimes currently imposed through EU law, while providing the necessary legal underpinning for the UK to decide when and how to act against new threats.
