Following the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001, the EU established a list of persons, groups and entities involved in terrorist acts and subject to restrictive measures. The list includes persons and groups active both within and outside the EU. It is reviewed regularly, and at least every 6 months. The EU also implemented UN Security Council resolution 1989 (2011) on the freezing of funds of persons and entities associated with Usama bin Laden, the Al-Qaida network and the Taliban (including ISIL/Da’esh).
