North Korea (the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea) is subject to restrictive measures targeting its weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile-related programs. The EU has implemented the restrictive measures imposed by Resolutions of the UN Security Council and has complemented them through its own autonomous measures. These restrictive measures include prohibitions on the trade of goods, services and technology which could contribute to North Korea’s above-mentioned programs. A number of people and entities that have been linked to these illegal programs are subject to travel restrictions and asset freeze, both by the UN and autonomously by the EU. Other restrictions also apply in the broader domains of trade, investment, transport and financial services. Additional information can be found here.
