Sanctions are legal restrictions put in place by the UN, EU, UK or Gibraltar in appropriate cases to achieve specific policy or security objectives.

Sanctions have been implemented effectively in Gibraltar for many years. However, among other new features, the Sanctions Act 2019 provides for the automatic recognition and enforcement of UN, EU and UK sanctions.

The Sanctions Act 2019 and the Terrorist-Asset Freezing Regulations 2011 also provide for separate Gibraltar sanctions designations to be made by the relevant competent authorities in Gibraltar if necessary. Any such designations will be posted on this page. There are no such designations at present.
