8 May 2018


On 27 April the EU amended its Burma sanctions regime to extend and strengthen its measures.

Council Decision 2013/184/CFSP recognised positive developments in Burma and lifted all restrictive measures with the exception of the arms embargo and the embargo on equipment which might be used for internal repression.

Council Decision 2018/655/CFSP of 26 April 2018 amended Decision 2013/184/CFSP to impose further restrictive measures on Burma. These include prohibiting the export of dual-use goods for military and Border Guard Police end users, and restrictions on the export of equipment for monitoring communications that might be used for internal repression.

The restrictive measures came into force on 27 April 2018.
