COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2017/1330

of 17 July 2017

amending Council Regulation (EC) No 329/2007 concerning restrictive measures against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 329/2007 of 27 March 2007 concerning restrictive measures against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (1), and in particular Article 13(1)(d) and (e) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 329/2007 lists persons, entities and bodies who, having been designated by the Sanctions Committee or the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), are covered by the freezing of funds and economic resources under that Regulation.

(2)

Annex V to Regulation (EC) No 329/2007 lists persons, entities and bodies who, not having been listed in Annex IV, have been listed by the Council, and are covered by the freezing of funds and economic resources under that Regulation.

(3)

On 5 June 2017, the Sanctions Committee amended the entries for two entities subject to restrictive measures.

(4)

On 2 June 2017, the UNSC adopted Resolution 2356 (2017) adding 14 natural persons and four entities to the list of persons and entities subject to restrictive measures. Those persons and entities have been added to Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 329/2007 by means of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/970 (2). Some of those persons and entities should therefore be deleted from Annex V to Regulation (EC) No 329/2007, as they are now designated under Annex IV.

(5)

Annex IV and V should therefore be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Annex IV and V to Regulation (EC) No 329/2007 are amended in accordance with Annex I and II to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.
