The amendments made by this instrument are to introduce a new exception into these regimes to provide that a prohibition or requirement is not contravened if conduct is authorised by a licence or other authorisation issued under the law as it applies in a British Overseas Territory or Crown Dependency

An impact assessment has not been produced for these Regulations, as the instrument is intended to ensure existing sanctions remain in place following the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union. An impact assessment was, however, produced for the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2018 and can be found at:
