EU implements August round of UN sanctions on N Korea & 4 new listings

The EU has implemented the round of UN sanctions imposed on North Korea in August, which among other things extended the import ban on certain North Korean goods and limited the number of work authorisations that may be issued for North Korean nationals (see previous blog). The EU has also listed the 1 person and 3 entities designated in the UN’s latest round of sanctions, but has not yet implemented the other measures the UN introduced at that time (see previous blog).
