 Responding to the US sanctions against Iran, the EU will implement the latest anti sanctions Ordinance.


The EU established anti sanctions regulations in 1996 against the US extraterritorial sanctions regulations in order to mitigate the damage caused by EU residents and companies in the implementation of sanctions against third parties in the United States. On June 6 this year, the European Commission enacted an amendment to include U.S. sanctions to restart Iran in the scope of the regulation. Since neither the European Council nor the European Parliament has expressed any objection during the two-month review period, the regulation will come into force on 7 th of this month.

In accordance with the regulations, the EU residents and companies may not comply with the rules of extraterritorial sanctions listed in the regulations unless special approval by the European Commission; and any foreign courts ruling based on these extraterritorial sanctions regulations is null and void within the EU.

The Ordinance also allows EU residents and companies to recourse damages to individuals or entities that cause damage, including legal fees. The EU residents and companies may claim claims in the courts of the EU Member States, and the assets of the injured party and its representatives or intermediaries may be confiscated and sold to provide compensation.

The White House announced Wednesday that the United States will resume sanctions against Iran in the financial, metal, mineral, automotive and other non-energy sectors on the 7th. After that, the United States will resume sanctions on energy, shipping and other fields in Iran in November 5th.

The European Union foreign and security policy senior representative Mo Guerrini and the foreign ministers of the three countries issued a joint statement on 6 days. It regrets that the United States will reopen the sanctions against Iran. It believes that the maintenance of a comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue concerns respect for international agreements, and the EU and the three countries will protect the legitimate interests of European enterprises and Iran. The statement said that the European side is determined to protect European enterprises legally operating in Iran in accordance with EU law and UN Security Council Resolution 2231. The statement said: the European Unions latest anti sanctions regulations will come into force in August 7th, with the aim of protecting European companies that operate legally with Iran from the extraterritorial sanctions of the United States. In July 2015, Iran reached a comprehensive agreement with the six countries on Irans nuclear issue (the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany). Under the agreement, Iran promised to limit its nuclear program, and the international community will lift sanctions against Iran. In May 8th this year, US President Trump announced that the United States should withdraw from the comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue and resume the sanctions against Iraq.
