EU expands sanctions against Syria - prohibits supply of more products which could be used for internal repression and bans sale, supply, transfer or export of luxury goods to Syria

On 23 April 2012, the Council of the European Union (EU) agreed to impose additional restrictive measures against Syria in Council Decision 2012/206/CFSP. This new set of sanctions amends Decision 2011/782/CFSP and follows numerous other sanctions.

The new restrictions, applicable as of 23 April 2012, apply to supply transactions by nationals of EU Member States (anywhere in the world) or by anyone from the territory of an EU Member State, or using the flag vessels or aircraft of a Member State, whether or not the goods originate in their territories. As always, non-EU businesses or non-EU nationals are affected if there is an EU nexus.
