OFSI makes Counter-Terrorism International Sanctions guidance

OFSI, together with the FCO and Export Control Joint Unit, has made guidance on the UK’s counter-terrorism and international sanctions, specifically anticipating a no-deal Brexit.  The guidance is made under SAMLA and complements wider guidance on sanctions compliance.  It summarises key legislation and includes detail on designation of persons, asset freezes and trade sanctions as well as immigration restrictions. It explains the roles of the key government departments and gives contact details. The guidance also summarises the information and record-keeping requirements.

The guidance explains what is required of businesses in respect of each type of sanction, and the consequences of breach.
