EU expands North Korea sanctions

The update adds new items, identified by the UN Sanctions Committee, to the list of sensitive goods that are subject to prohibitions on transfer, procurement, and provision of related technical assistance. In addition, the EU has decided to extend the UN’s prohibition on entry into ports of any vessel that is owned, operated, or crewed by North Korea to also cover North Korea flagged vessels. See Regulation 2016/1333 amend Regulation 329/2007 and Decision (CFSP) 2016/1341 amending Decision (CFSP) 2016/849.
