Notices to Exporters 2012/27 - Details of new restrictive measures concerning the export of dual-use and luxury goods to Syria imposed by the European Union via Council Regulation (EU) No 509/2012
Update about new restrictions on exporting specific goods to Syria.
The European Union has imposed new sanctions on Syria via Council Regulation (EU) No 509/2012. The sanctions came into force on 17 June 2012.
The sanctions measures include new prohibitions on the sale, supply, transfer or export of certain dual-use items and chemicals (such as protection and detection equipment and reaction vessels). There is also a licensing requirement on the sale, supply, transfer or export of certain dual use items that might be used for internal repression.
Prohibited items to Syria also include listed luxury goods (such as caviar, truffles, cigars, wines, spirits, leather goods, table and glassware, clocks, watches and luxury vehicles).
If you trade with Syria in any of the prohibited or licensable items you should take time to inform yourself of these sanctions and take steps to comply with the restrictions.
