The European Commission has published a Commission Guidance note on the implementation of certain provisions of Council Regulation (EU) No 833/2014. The Regulation came into force on 31 July 2014 and imposes a package of “tier 3” sanctions on Russia in view of the situation in Ukraine (see our previous blog post on the measures) which was amended in September and December (see previous blogs here and here).

It aims to ensure the uniform interpretation of the Regulation by national authorities and other parties.
