UK updates guidance on terrorism sanctions


OFSI and the Home Office have updated the UK guidance note for NGOs and others on counter-terrorist sanctions and export controls, originally published in 2015

This “for information note” has been prepared primarily for International Non-Government Organisations (INGOs) but it may apply to other sectors, particularly the financial sector.

It provides information on counter-terrorism legislation including the counter-terrorism elements of sanctions and export control that may be of relevance to INGOs delivering development and humanitarian assistance in high-risk jurisdictions.

There are FAQs at the end of this document. Her Majesty’s Government (HMG) has actively consulted with UK-based INGOs through the Home Office chaired Tri-Sector Working Group.
