The British Government do not request information on the value of particular assets held in the Overseas Territories on a routine basis.

However, the Government do consult closely with the Territories on the implementation of sanctions within their jurisdictions.

The Overseas Territories are committed to work with the UK to promote the application of high international standards and will play their full part in implementing sanctions and asset freezing measures.
