The European Union has decided to renew its sanctions (restrictive measures) relating to Iran and to Egypt.

The Council of the EU has published a notice on 15 March 2014 informing people and companies listed in Regulation 267/2012 and another notice for those listed on Regulation 359/2011 that measures against them continue to apply, and that they may submit a request to reconsider that decision before 15 April 2014.

The Council of the EU has also just published a new Decision extending its sanctions relating to Egypt until 22 March 2015, and a notice for those listed in Council Regulation (EU) No 270/2011 informing them that they may submit a request to the Council for reconsideration before 30 January 2015.

The Iran and Egypt sanctions are on the ‘sanctions in force’ section of this blog.
