COUNCIL REGULATION (EC) No 329/2007

of 27 March 2007

concerning restrictive measures against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea



THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Articles 60 and 301 thereof,

Having regard to Council Common Position 2006/795/CFSP of 20 November 2006 concerning restrictive measures against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea ( 1 ),

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas:

(1)

On 14 October 2006, the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 1718 (2006) in which it condemned the nuclear test that the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (hereinafter referred to as North Korea), had conducted on 9 October 2006, determining that there was a clear threat to international peace and security, and imposing on all Member States of the United Nations that they apply a number of restrictive measures.

(2)

Common Position 2006/795/CFSP provides for the implementation of the restrictive measures set out in Resolution 1718 (2006) and notably for a ban on exports of goods and technology which could contribute to North Korea's nuclear-related, other weapons of mass destruction-related or ballistic missile-related programmes, and on the provision of related services, a ban on procurement of goods and technology from North Korea, a ban on exports of luxury goods to North Korea, as well as the freezing of funds and economic resources of persons, entities and bodies engaged in or providing support for the said North Korean programmes.

(3)

These measures fall within the scope of the Treaty establishing the European Community and, therefore, notably with a view to ensuring their uniform application by economic operators in all Member States, Community legislation is necessary in order to implement them as far as the Community is concerned.

(4)

This Regulation derogates from existing Community legislation that provides for general rules on exports to, and imports from, third countries, and in particular from Council Regulation (EC) No 1334/2000 of 22 June 2000 setting up a Community regime for the control of exports of dual-use items and technology ( 2 ); most of these items and technology should be covered by this Regulation.

(5)

It is appropriate to clarify the procedure that should be followed to obtain approval for exports of goods and technology and the provision of related technical assistance.

(6)

For reasons of expediency, the Commission should be empowered to publish the list of goods and technology that will be adopted by the Sanctions Committee or the UN Security Council and, if appropriate, to add the reference numbers taken from the Combined Nomenclature as set out in Annex I to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 of 23 July 1987 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and on the Common Customs Tariff ( 3 ).

(7)

The Commission should also be empowered to amend the list of luxury goods if necessary in view of any definition or guidelines that the Sanctions Committee may promulgate to facilitate the implementation of the restrictions concerning luxury goods, taking the lists of luxury goods produced by other jurisdictions into account.

(8)

For reasons of expediency, the Commission should also be empowered to amend the list of persons, entities and bodies whose funds and economic resources should be frozen, on the basis of determinations made by either the Sanctions Committee or the United Nations Security Council.

(9)

Member States should determine the penalties applicable to infringements of the provisions of this Regulation. The penalties provided for should be proportionate, effective and dissuasive.

(10)

In order to ensure that the measures provided for in this Regulation are effective, this Regulation should enter into force immediately,
