Combatting proliferation financing

All United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and UK autonomous sanctions related to the prevention and disruption of the financing of proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) are implemented in Jersey through the Sanctions and Asset-Freezing (Jersey) Law 2019 and the Sanctions and Asset Freezing (Implementation of External Sanctions) (Jersey) Order 2021 (together "Jersey's sanctions legislation"). 

Jersey's sanctions legislation gives effect to the UNSC proliferation financing regime by applying the relevant UK sanctions Regulation, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (Sanctions) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019. Jersey's sanctions legislation also gives effect to UK autonomous proliferation financing sanctions regime, the Iran (Sanctions) (Nuclear) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019.

  • WMD include, for example, atomic explosive weapons, lethal biological and chemical weapons, radioactive material weapons and any weapons developed in the future which have comparative destructive effects
  • Jersey also implements export controls of dual-use goods, UK trade sanctions, arms embargoes and other trade restrictions that have been put in place to help combat proliferation
