As a result of the recent developing situation in Ukraine, close scrutiny has been paid to the role of sanctions in deterring further aggression by the Russian Federation. This resource is intended to aid members in their compliance with these obligations. With the pace of these measures, please refer to this resource regularly to remain in line with international obligations.
In Ireland, financial sanctions emanate from the EU and the UN, and are contained in sanctions lists. All natural and legal persons are required to comply with financial sanctions. This requires monitoring the EU and UN lists and taking appropriate action, more details of which are given below.
It is a criminal offence not to comply with sanctions and firms which do not comply also risk reputational damage.
