This Order (SI 2018/871) makes provision in connection with the trade restrictions against Burma specified in Council Regulation (EU) 401/2013 and revokes and replaces the Export Control (Burma Sanctions) Order 2013.  The Order deals with licences, information powers, offences and penalties in connection with the sanctions regime affecting Burma/Myanmar.  It follows the new EU-wide trade restrictions set out in Council Regulation (EU) 2018/647 of April.  This latest Regulation was adopted by the EU Council in response to widespread, systematic and grave human rights violations committed by the Burmese military and security forces and involved imposition of sanctions prohibiting the export to Burma of, amongst other things, dual-use goods, technology, software, and the provision of telecommunications, internet monitoring or interception services to Burma.
