Country Footnotes

Iraq General trade sanctions against Iraq, except prohibitions related to the sale or supply of arms and related materiel, were revoked by the UN Security Council resolution 1483 (22 May 2003), implemented in UK legislation on 14 June 2003 by the Iraq (United Nations Sanctions) Order 2003 [S.I. 2003/1519]. UNSCR 1546 (2004) continues the embargo on arms and related materiel against Iraq, but provides exemptions for equipment required by the Government of Iraq to serve the purposes of UNSCR 1546 (2004). All exports for this destination were approved in accordance with the sanctions in place.
