Counter-Terrorism sanctions: guidance

Guidance on the Counter-Terrorism (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 once the Counter-Terrorism (Sanctions) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 have commenced.

This guidance assists people in implementing and complying with the Counter-Terrorism (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).
