COUNCIL REGULATION (EU) No 1067/2012

of 14 November 2012

amending Regulation (EU) No 267/2012 concerning restrictive measures against Iran

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 215 thereof,

Having regard to Council Decision 2010/413/CFSP of 26 July 2010 concerning restrictive measures against Iran (1),

Having regard to the joint proposal from the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and the European Commission,

Whereas:

(1)

Council Regulation (EU) No 267/2012 (2) gives effect to the measures provided for in Decision 2010/413/CFSP. That Regulation provides for, inter alia, the freezing of all funds and economic resources belonging to, or owned, held or controlled by, the persons, entities and bodies listed in Annexes VIII and IX to the Regulation.

(2)

Council Decision 2012/635/CFSP (3) provides for an exemption under the restrictive measures in order to protect the energy security of the Union.

(3)

That exemption falls within the scope of the Treaty and regulatory action at the level of the Union is therefore necessary in order to implement it.

(4)

Regulation (EU) No 267/2012 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(5)

In order to ensure that the measures provided for in this Regulation are effective, it should enter into force on the day following that of its publication,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

(b)

in so far as necessary for the execution, until 31 December 2014, of the obligations arising from contracts referred to in point (b) of Article 12(1) provided that those acts and transactions have been authorised in advance, on a case-by-case basis, by the competent authority concerned and that the Member State concerned has informed the other Member States and the Commission of its intention to grant an authorisation.’.
