A draft Order in Council concerning the application of the sanctions set out in Council Regulation (EU) 269/2014 will be submitted to the next meeting of the Privy Council.

An Order in Council concerning the application of the sanctions set out in Council Regulation 208/2014 was made on 5 March 2014 and came into force on 7 March 2014.

These Orders in Council do not extend to Bermuda or Gibraltar. Bermuda enacts local legislation to apply the provisions set out in EU Council Regulations imposing sanctions. Such Council Regulations apply directly in Gibraltar.
