An article from Gowling WLG on 25 May says that the UK’s autonomous sanctions regime is not a simple “copy and paste” of existing EU law. It is said that the UK is keen to demonstrate that it is a robust player on the global stage, which includes lively sanctions activity and enforcement. As such, the UK’s domestic legislation has introduced harsher penalties and in places goes further than the EU counterparts to which it was formerly bound. The article considers the key implications of the UK sanctions and export control regime and the factors that businesses will need to consider in order to avoid the risk of civil or criminal penalties in the post-Brexit landscape.
