North Korea (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) is subject to counter-proliferation measures, aimed at preventing individuals and entities from obtaining goods, funds, or services which could contribute to North Korea’s proliferation program. Sanctions include asset freezes, sectoral financial sanctions, restrictions on certain services and financial assistance, prohibitions on the export and procurement of arms, and prohibitions on the export of dual-use goods, among many others. The list of sanctions targets is periodically extended pursuant to UN resolutions. Additional information can be found here.
