A Sanctions regime is a collection of sanctions measures put in place for a particular set of purposes.
Regimes can be either ‘thematic’ (relating to a particular issue), or ‘geographic’ (relating to a particular country or region). The underlying regulations for many of the UK Sanctions regimes listed have been extended to the Virgin Islands through Orders in Council. The UK Sanctions Regime includes designated persons and specified or designated ships.
This page provides information on each of the UK sanctions regimes currently in force, which includes regimes under the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2018 and other UK legislation.
