On 21 March 2015, the EU Council extended its restrictive measures in view of the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina until 31 March 2016.  Under the measures, listed individuals and entities are subject to an EU-wide asset freeze and travel ban.

The current EU sanctions against Bosnia and Herzegovina were first introduced in March 2011 to target those who undermine the sovereignty of the country, seriously threaten its security situation, or undermine the Dayton/Paris General Framework Agreement for Peace.

The extension is brought into force by Council Decision (CFSP) 2015/487 amending Council Decision 2011/173/CFSP.
