Procurement Policy Note 01/16: Complying with international obligations reminds contracting authorities that boycotts in public procurement are inappropriate, unless formal legal sanctions, embargoes and restrictions have been put in place by the UK government.

This is guidance on existing policy, which has been in place under successive governments for many years. Individual Procurement Policy Notes are not routinely monitored, but compliance with the procurement rules is achieved on an on-going basis by monitoring public procurement legal cases and the Government’s Mystery Shopper Service.
