Statutory review of existing autonomous sanctions public consultation

Media Release

7 June 2016

Designations of individuals and entities made under the Autonomous Sanctions Regulations 2011 expire after three years, unless extended by the Minister for Foreign Affairs.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade invites members of the public to comment on a review of Australia’s existing listings of ten individuals and entities designated under Australia’s autonomous sanctions in relation to Iran.

It is a criminal offence under the Autonomous Sanctions Act 2011 and the Autonomous Sanctions Regulations 2011 to directly or indirectly make an asset available to, or for the benefit of, a designated person or entity.

Details of the listings currently under review and how to make a submission may be found on the DFAT website.

The full list of persons and entities designated for targeted financial sanctions under Australian law, including Australian autonomous sanctions in relation to Iran, are on the DFAT Consolidated List.
