Notice to exporters 2022/04: new Russia sanctions

Dear Exporter

Please see Notice to Exporters 2022/04 informing about introduction of new trade sanctions on Russia introduced on 1 March 2022. The measures in  Russia (Sanctions) (EU Exit) (Amendment) (No. 3) Regulations 2022 include a list of critical-industry goods and critical-industry technology which are prohibited for export, supply or transfer to, or for use in Russia, along with the provision of technical assistance, financial services and brokering services.

Guidance on the scope of sanctions against Russia, including the circumstances in which licences can be granted, can be found on the GOV.UK Russia sanctions: guidance page.

There are also financial sanctions against Russia and further information is available from the Office for Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI).

You are advised to open the Notice to Exporters and all embedded hyper-links to see the full scope of the sanctions.

You should also read Notice to Exporters 2022/03 with action taken, suspending use of extant export licences for dual-use items to Russia and licences with Russia as a final destination. NTE 2022/03 also includes the list of open general licences for which ECJU has removed Russia as a permitted destination. 

As a business, it is your responsibility to read the new legislation and take appropriate action. 

Regards

Export Control Joint Unit

Notice

NTE 2022/04: introduction of new sanctions against Russia

Published 2 March 2022

Further to Notice 2022/03, a tranche of new trade sanctions on Russia was introduced on 1 March 2022.

The full details of the new measures, which augment the sanctions measures introduced in 2014, can be found in the Russia (Sanctions) (EU Exit) (Amendment) (No. 3) Regulations 2022.

The new measures include a list of critical-industry goods and critical-industry technology which are now prohibited for export, supply or transfer to, or for use in, Russia, along with the provision of related technical assistance, financial services and brokering services.

Existing prohibitions on the export, supply or transfer of military and dual-use items, as well as restrictions on the export or supply of energy-related goods and services, remain in place.

There are some exceptions to these prohibitions, which are set out in detail in the legislation, and licences can be granted in very limited circumstances.

There are also financial sanctions against Russia and further information is available from the Office for Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI).

Guidance on the scope of sanctions against Russia, including the circumstances in which licences can be granted, can be found on the GOV.UK Russia sanctions: guidance page.

The Export Support Service is ready to help with any other enquiries about exporting or trading with Russia or Ukraine that are not specific to the requirement for export licences.
