US Sanctions and the EU Blocking Statute

The Blocking Statute is an EU Regulation enacted in 1996 to nullify the extra-territorial effects of US sanctions against Cuba and Iran. Extra-territorial effects include penalties or other punitive measures imposed by the US on entities operating in the EU because of their trade or commercial links with Iran or Cuba.

The main features of the Blocking Statute are as follows:

  • It requires any entity in the EU adversely impacted by US sanctions to inform the Commission directly or via national competent authority.
  • It nullifies the effect of any judgment of a court or administrative authority located outside the EU giving effect to a blocked measure.
  • It prohibits EU entities from complying with any requirements or prohibitions resulting from a blocked measure.
  • It provides that EU entities may obtain an authorisation from the Commission to comply with such prohibitions if non-compliance would seriously damage their interests, or those of the EU.
  • Article 6 provides that an EU entity shall be entitled to recover any damages, including legal costs, caused by the application of a blocked measure.

The Department of Business Enterprise and Innovation is the national competent authority for the Regulation. Statutory Instruments SI No 217/1997 and SI No 319/2018 give full effect to the Regulation in Ireland. In particular, Section 4 of the former SI provides that, “Proceedings in which damages are claimed under Article 6 of the Council Regulation shall be brought in the High Court.”

US Sanctions Against Iran

In May 2018, the US announced its unilateral withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) – the Iran nuclear deal. US sanctions against Iran, which were suspended under the terms of the JCPOA, were re-introduced in two phases, in August and November 2018.

The Blocking Statute was updated in August 2018 in response to this US action.

US Sanctions Against Cuba

In May 2019 the US activated a provision in the Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity (Helms-Burton) Act of 1996 that it had previously waived. This provision, Title III, allows entities to seek compensation through the US courts for the expropriation of property by the Cuba Government after the 1959 revolution. Compensation can be sought from entities that were subsequent owners of an expropriated property or that ‘trafficking’ in an expropriated property. This means that claims could be made against European companies operating in Cuba on expropriated property, even if they do not own the property e.g. a hotel or an airline.

Withdrawal of the United Kingdom and EU Rules in the Field of Import/Export Licences for Certain Goods

The European Commission has prepared a Notice to Stakeholders to make market operators aware of the consequences of the UK becoming a third country (a country which is not a member of the European Union) under EU law.

Stakeholders engaged in shipments of goods which are subject to import/export licences or which may become subject to import/export licences are reminded of the legal repercussions which need to be considered when the UK withdraws from the EU.

The Notice states that, as of the withdrawal date:

  1. Where the import of goods is subject to a licensing requirement under Union law, shipments from the EU-27 to the UK and vice versa will require the appropriate import/export licence.

  2. Import/export licences issued by the United Kingdom as an EU Member State on the basis of Union law are no longer valid for shipments to the EU-27 from third countries or vice versa

The Commission suggests that stakeholders concerned may want to consider taking the necessary steps in order to prepare for possible change.

Notice to Exporters - Proposed update to EU Dual-Use Control List

Annex I to Council Regulation (EC) No 428/2009, the EU Dual-Use Regulation, establishes the common list of dual-use items subject to controls– the "EU dual-use control list".

The annex is regularly updated to take account of changes to the control lists adopted by the international non-proliferation regimes and export control arrangements. Changes made by those regimes in 2015 now require another amendment of the EU dual-use control list.

Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No XXX/20161 amending Council Regulation (EC) No 428/2009 setting up a Community regime for the control of exports, transfer, brokering and transit of dual-use items and updating the EU list of dual-use items was adopted by the European Commission on 12th September 2016.

The Regulation presents a variety of amendments to the EU dual-use control list concerning the control parameters, the technical definitions and descriptions and the removal or addition of dual-use items.

For further information on the draft Regulation please refer to:
trade.ec.europa.eu/doclib/docs/2016/september/tradoc_154948.pdf

The Regulation is now being considered by the European Council and the European Parliament under a statutory consultation procedure. Please note that this Regulation has not yet entered into force. It is subject to the right of the European Parliament and the Council to express objections, in accordance with Article 290 (2) of the Treaty on the functioning of the European Union.

Should no objections be received from the European Council and the European Parliament the Regulation can be expected to enter into force approximately two months after its adoption. A further 'Notice for Exporters' will be issued upon its publication in the Official Journal and entry into force.

1 The Regulation will receive its registration number on publication in the Official Journal of the European Union


Notice to Exporters – Export Control Policy Review

On 28th September 2016 the European Commission published a proposal to replace “Council Regulation (EC) No 428/2009 of 5 May 2009 setting up a Community regime for the control of exports, transfer, brokering and transit of dual-use items”, the current EU Dual-Use Regulation.

Details of the European Commission’s proposal are available at europa.eu/rapid/press-release_IP-16-3190_en.htm

The publication of the proposal follows the European Commission’s Export Control Policy Review – see previous “notices to exporters” on the review below.

The European Commission's proposal will now be decided upon by the European Council and the European Parliament. It is not possible at this time to identify a precise timescale for these discussions and subsequent decisions on the Commission's proposal. Exporters will be informed of any developments and consulted where appropriate.

The current EU Dual-Use Regulation, Council Regulation (EC) No 428/2009, remains in force until these discussions have been completed.


Nuclear-related sanctions against Iran

On 16 January 2016, the Director-General of the International Atomic Energy confirmed to the UN Security Council that Iran has taken the required measures specified in paragraphs 15.1 to 15.11 of Annex V of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in relation to its nuclear programme. This day is known as Implementation Day in the JCPOA.

Non-proliferation sanctions which are outside the scope of the JCPOA and will remain in place after Implementation Day:

  • Sanctions imposed by the EU in view of the human rights situation in Iran, its support for terrorism and other grounds
  • Iranian persons who are listed under EU terrorism and Syria sanctions regimes (or any other EU sanction regime)

Applications for export licences for dual use goods not listed in the sanctions regime for Iran can be made to this Department in the normal manner.

Information Notice for Exporters - Dual-Use Export Controls Policy Review online survey

In the context of the ongoing export control policy review, and after publication of its 2014 Communication, the European Commission has initiated an "impact assessment" study to ensure an in-depth and comprehensive analysis of economic, social (including security and human rights) and environmental impacts of the various review options outlined in this Communication.

The Commission has contracted consultants - the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) and ECORYS - to conduct a "data collection project" to support the impact assessment. As part of this project SIPRI and ECORYS has launched an online survey. The survey invites exporters to provide information regarding the impact of the current dual-use export control regulation and the possible impact of its review options. The survey focuses on issues such as compliance costs but also on competitiveness issues.

The European Commission's 2014 Communication is available at trade.ec.europa.eu/doclib/docs/2014/april/tradoc_152446.pdf

The online survey for companies is available at s.chkmkt.com/exportcontrolreviewcompanies

The survey for trade associations is available at s.chkmkt.com/exportcontrolreviewbusinessassociations

The deadline for completion of the surveys is 26th June 2015.


Information Notice for Exporters – new Dual Use Regulation

An updated Dual Use Regulation has come into force

The "Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1382/2014 of 22 October 2014 amending Council Regulation (EC) No 428/2009 setting up a Community regime for the control of exports, transfer, brokering and transit of dual-use items" was published in the Official Journal on the 30th December 2014 (L 371, 30.12.2014, p. 1–212) and came into force on December 31st 2014.

The updated regulation replaces the EU control list of Dual Use items (Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 428/2009) and updates the EU control list to reflect decisions taken in export control regimes in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Regulation (EU) No 388/2012 reflected decisions made by the international export control regimes up to December 2010.

The Regulation is directly applicable in all Member States and can be found at: eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=CELEX:32014R1382

The update incorporates some 400 changes as a result of decisions made by the international export control regimes in 2011, 2012 & 2013. These changes include the addition of new controls, the removal of some controls, changes to certain technical parameters and other amendments.

The document ‘comprehensive change note summary for Council Regulation (EU) No. 428/2009’ provides a summary of these changes and can be found at: trade.ec.europa.eu/doclib/docs/2015/january/tradoc_152996.pdf

Important changes – cryptography note

While the update contains a number of important changes, exporters should note that it includes an additional ‘note to the cryptography note’. 

Future updates to the Dual Use Regulation

The Regulation was adopted by the Commission under the new “delegated acts” procedure which allows for more timely updates to the EU control list. We expect there to be annual updates to the control list, reflecting decisions taken in export control regimes during the previous year.

Should you have any comments on the Regulation please address them to: exportcontrol@djei.ie


Information Notice – EU Sanctions in relation to Russia

With effect from 6 December 2014, the European Union introduced measures to clarify the scope and application of existing provisions, they do not introduce new sanctions.  The new measures are contained in Council Decision 2014/842/CFSP and Council Regulation (EU) No 1290/2014.

The measures include the following clarifications:

  • In respect of derogations, reference to contracts concluded before a certain date also applies to ancillary contracts necessary for the execution of such contracts. 
  • Measures against the energy sector, contained in Articles 3, 3a and 4(3) of Council Regulation 833/2014, apply to Russia including its Exclusive Economic Zone and Continental Shelf.
  • Reference to “deep water oil exploration and production, arctic oil exploration and production, or shale oil projects” is replaced with the following:

Oil exploration and production in waters deeper than 150 metres;

Oil exploration and production in the offshore area north of the Arctic Circle; or

Projects that have the potential to produce oil from resources located in shale formations by way of hydraulic fracturing. It does not apply to exploration and production through shale formations to locate or extract oil from non-shale reservoirs.

  • A new notification procedure is required on the use of the existing exemption in Article 3a relating to the provision of services necessary for the urgent prevention or mitigation of an event likely to have a serious and significant impact on human health and safety or the environment. The notification must be made to Licensing Unit within 5 working days of the provision of services taking place and must include the justification for the provision of services taking place without prior authorisation.
  • Member States are permitted to grant an authorisation under Article 3 where the sale, supply, transfer or export of the items is necessary for the urgent prevention or mitigation of an event likely to have a serious and significant impact on human health and safety or the environment. In “duly justified cases of emergency” an activity may proceed without authorisation provided the exporter notifies Licensing Unit within 5 days providing details of the transaction and the relevant justification for the sale, supply, transfer or export without prior authorisation. The provision of services as set out in Article 4(3) may also proceed without prior authorization in similar circumstances provided the same notification procedures are followed.
  • In respect of financial restrictions within Article 5 (the Central Bank is the competent authority).
  • Changes to Annex II in respect of CN codes 841350, 841360, ex 84313900, ex 84314300, and ex 843149.

Notice to exporters – Decontrol Notes

The Dual Use Regulation includes a number of decontrol notes that provide for exemptions from licensing requirements. These decontrol notes generally apply to more widely available products with a commercial use. The most commonly used decontrol note is the Cryptography Note found under Category 5 Part 2 of the control list.

For the last number of years it has been the practice of this Department to require exporters to make a submission to us confirming their eligibility to avail of an exemption from licensing requirements pursuant to decontrol notes.

However, the Department has recently undertaken a major review of our administration of decontrol notes, including surveying the practices of Licensing Authorities in other Member States and reviewing technical advice.

Recognising that the exporter is best placed to determine compliance with decontrol notes, and reflecting the practices of other Member States, it is no longer necessary for exporters to apply to this Department for an exemption from licensing requirements pursuant to decontrol notes.

Where you are satisfied that you meet the conditions of a particular decontrol note you can claim an exemption from licensing requirements. It is not necessary to apply to the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation for verification of your eligibility to use the decontrol note or to notify us of your intention to use the decontrol note.

This new policy will ensure that exporters can determine their own compliance with decontrol notes and avail of relevant exemptions without awaiting verification of their eligibility to do so.

The Department reserves the right to request details from exporters claiming exemptions from licensing requirements to ascertain their compliance with the relevant decontrol notes where necessary.

You will note that the revised Regulation includes an update to the cryptography note which now reads:

Note 3: Cryptography Note 5A002 and 5D002 do not control items as follows:

a Items that meet all of the following:

1. Generally available to the public by being sold, without restriction, from stock at retail selling points by means of any of the following:

a. Over-the-counter transactions;

b. Mail order transactions;

c. Electronic transactions; or

d. Telephone call transactions;

2. The cryptographic functionality cannot easily be changed by the user;

3. Designed for installation by the user without further substantial support by the supplier; and

4. When necessary, details of the goods are accessible and will be provided, upon request, to the competent authorities of the Member State in which the exporter is established in order to ascertain compliance with conditions described in paragraphs 1. to 3. above;

1. To meet paragraph a. of Note 3, all of the following must apply:

a. The item is of potential interest to a wide range of individuals and businesses; and

b. The price and information about the main functionality of the item are available before purchase without the need to consult the vendor or supplier.

2. In determining eligibility of paragraph a. of Note 3, competent authorities may take into account relevant factors such as quantity, price, required technical skill, existing sales channels, typical customers, typical use or any exclusionary practices of the supplier.


Information Notice for Exporters - Update to the Dual Use Regulation

The European Commission has adopted a Regulation to replace Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 428/2009 (the Dual Use Regulation) and update the EU control list  to reflect decisions taken in export control regimes in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

This Commission Regulation ("delegated act") will be published in the Official Journal and shall enter into force only if no objection has been expressed by either the European Parliament or the Council within a period of two months.

In the absence of objections from the Council and Parliament we expect the Regulation to be published in the Official Journal on the 30th December 2014 and to enter into force on 31st December 2014.

The Regulation will be directly applicable in all Member States and can be found at trade.ec.europa.eu/doclib/press/index.cfm?id=1166

The Regulation was adopted by the Commission under the new “delegated acts” procedure which will allow for more timely updates to the EU control list. We expect there to be annual updates to the control list, reflecting decisions taken in export control regimes during the previous year.

Should you have any comments on the Regulation please address them to exportcontrol@djei.ie.


Information Notice for Exporters – New EU Sanctions in relation to Russia

New sanctions against Russia came into force on 12th September 2014. The new measures are contained in Council Regulation (EU) No 960/2014 .

The sanctions include additional restrictions on exports of dual-use goods and technology. These restrictions take the form of a prohibition on the sale, supply, export or transfer of dual-use items to the nine entities listed in Annex IV of the revised Regulation.

It is also prohibited to provide technical assistance, financing or financial assistance and brokering services in relation to the provision of dual-use items to the entities listed in Annex IV of the revised Regulation.

These new prohibitions do not apply to contracts or agreements concluded before 12th September 2014. There are also exemptions for the aeronautics and space industry for non-military use and non-military end-users.

Applications for a licence for the export of dual-use items that are not intended for military end-use, for a military end-user in Russia or to nine entities listed in Annex IV of the revised Regulation should be submitted through OELAS in the normal fashion.

Global licence holders will be aware that their licence prohibits exports to military or police end users or any State (including but not limited to Interior Ministry activities), national or sub national security forces, or end users whose subsidiaries, affiliates or associated companies are involved in military, police or State (including but not limited to Interior Ministry activities), national or sub national security related activities.

All exports made under global licences must be in compliance with EU and International Trade Sanctions. The global licence cannot therefore be used to export dual-use items to the nine entities listed in Annex IV of the revised Regulation.

Council Regulation (EU) No 960/2014 also contains, inter alia, prohibitions on the provision of services necessary for deep water oil exploration and production, arctic oil exploration and production, or shale oil projects in Russia.


Information Notice – EU Sanctions in relation to Russia

On 31 July 2014 the European Union imposed new sanctions against Russia which came into force on 1 August 2014. The new measures are contained in Council Decision 2014/512/CFSP and Council Regulation (EU) No 833/2014.

These measures include:

An arms embargo.

A prohibition on supply of dual-use items which are or may be intended for military end-use or for a military end-user in Russia.

There are also related prohibitions on the provision of technical assistance, financing and financial assistance, and brokering services for the above items.

Prior authorisation for the sale, supply, transfer or export of certain energy-related equipment and technology as listed in Annex II of the Regulation, to any person, entity or body in Russia or any other country if such equipment or technology is for use in Russia. Prior authorisation is also required for the provision of technical assistance, financing and financial assistance, and brokering related to the sale, supply, transfer or export of these technologies to Russia or for use in Russia. A licence will not be granted if there are reasonable grounds to determine that the equipment or technologies are for use pertaining to deep water oil exploration and production, Arctic oil exploration and production, or shale oil projects in Russia.

Whereas these restrictive measures came into force on 1 August 2014, the conclusion of a contract before that date does not itself guarantee that a licence will be issued. Each application will be assessed on a case by case basis.

An application form seeking prior authorisation for the sale, supply, transfer or export of certain energy-related equipment and technology as listed in Annex II of the Regulation can be obtained from Licensing Unit on request by emailing exportcontrol@djei.ie.

Applications for a licence for the export of dual-use items that are not intended for military end-use or for a military end-user in Russia should be submitted through OELAS in the normal fashion.

We aim to process applications received under this Regulation promptly, however as these are new restrictions and in many cases require consultation with other Government Departments and with Licensing Authorities in other Member States we cannot at this stage provide an estimate as to how long the process will take.

Further enquiries on the Regulation can be sent by email to exportcontrol@djei.ie
