A number of different agencies are responsible for the enforcement of sanctions in the UK, including the National Crime Agency, and HM Treasury, through the Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation. The Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office has dedicated sanctions policy resource, including for the Global Anti-Corruption sanctions regime.

Any additional resourcing needs arising from new sanctions regimes are identified early and addressed in the context both of each internal function and across the sanctions community in Whitehall.

Future funding decisions will be taken at the next Comprehensive Spending Review.
