THE BUSINESS OF INTERNATIONAL TRADE
At 11pm, on December 31, 2020, the UK's transition agreement with the EU will cease to apply, however under the UK-EU withdrawl agreements, sanctions will still apply to the UK in relation to countries including Mali and Lebanon.
To outline how these UN sanctions will be imposed and enforced, the Export Control Joint Unit (ECJU) has published guides on what to be aware of when doing business with Mali or Lebanon. The guides explain what the sanctions are, what type of interactions are prohibited, and in what circumstances, and how individuals and organisations can apply for licences or exemptions.
Details on the sanctions involving Mali can be found at: www.gov.uk/government/publications/mali-sanctions-guidance.
Details on the sanctions involving Lebanon can be found at: www.gov.uk/government/publications/lebanon-sanctions-guidance.
Further information on UK trade sanctions can be found at www.gov.uk/business-and-industry/embargoes-and-sanctions.
