COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2016/1831

of 14 October 2016

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)(g) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EC) No 329/2007 gives effect to measures provided for in Council Decision (CFSP) 2016/849 (2).

(2)

On 2 March 2016, the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution (UNSCR) 2270 (2016) providing for new measures against North Korea. In accordance with that Resolution, on 4 April 2016 the Sanctions Committee established pursuant to UNSCR 1718 (2006) published a list of additional goods to which prohibitions on the transfer, procurement and provision of technical assistance apply (the ‘sensitive goods’ list).

(3)

Following the adoption of Resolution (UNSCR) 2270 (2016), on 4 August 2016 the Council adopted Decision (CFSP) 2016/1341 (3). Council Regulation (EU) 2016/1333 (4) amended Regulation (EC) No 329/2007 accordingly, adding Annex Ig.

(4)

This proposal identifies the sensitive goods to be included in Annex Ig of Regulation (EC) No 329/2007 and allocates the reference numbers taken from the Combined Nomenclature as set out in Annex I to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 (5). Annex Ig of Regulation (EC) No 329/2007 should therefore be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Annex Ig to Regulation (EC) No 329/2007 is amended in accordance with the Annex 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.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 14 October 2016.
