Public consultation over international sanctions

Have your say until 27 January

The public is to have its say over ways of improving the implementation of international sanctions.

A consultation is running until the 27 of January on the draft Sanctions Bill 2022.

The bill aims to address limitations with the legislative methods currently used.

Isle of Man Government policy is to implement international sanctions in line with those in force in the UK.

The Island is also obliged, under the UK's membership of the United Nations, to implement sanctions imposed by UN Security Council resolutions - particularly in relation to preventing terrorist activity and financing nuclear weapons.

The aims of the Sanctions Bill are to provide a modern and flexible framework to implement UK sanctions measures in a timely manner; make sanctions legislation easier to locate and follow, and to introduce measures to deal with the enforcement of sanctions related offences more effectively.
