Sanctions regimes made under SAMLA 2018—tracker

The Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2018 (SAMLA 2018) was implemented to ensure the UK has a robust sanctions regime after the UK leaves the EU (Brexit) and enables the UK to impose financial sanctions, immigration sanctions, trade sanctions, aircraft sanctions, shipping sanctions and other sanctions to comply with United Nations Security Council (UNSC) or other international obligation, or for another purpose that the UK government considers would serve one or more of the statutory aims. This includes sanctions regimes replacing the EU sanctions regimes that were created under EU legislation and implemented in the UK via regulations made under the European Communities Act 1972 (ECA 1972) which were in force in the UK prior to the end of IP completion day (11 pm on 31 December 2020). For more information, see Practice Notes: The UK sanctions framework under SAMLA 2018 and Development of sanctions regime in the UK post Brexit—timeline.

The Global Human Rights sanctions regime was the first autonomous UK sanctions regime to be implemented under SAMLA 2018. See further below: Global human rights sanctions regime.
