The UN Security Council, the European Union and other international organizations use sanctions to maintain or restore peace and security, to promote the international legal order or to combat terrorism. The UN Sanctions are transposed into EU sanctions. Sanctions in the form of a European regulation have direct effect in all EU member states. International sanctions can be implemented in Aruba through the National Ordinance of 21 October 2013 (AB 2013 no. 77) amendment in the Sanctions Regulation 2006 (AB 2007 no. 24): extension of the possibility of applying sanction decisions and improving the designation of supervisors.
It is important for Aruban businesses when importing and exporting to carefully consider if they are not doing business with one of the sanctioned countries or importing/exporting a sanctioned good. Therefore, in order to promote transparency, the EU Sanctions Map is provided by this means to all businesses in order to verify a country or thematic restriction. The EU Sanctions Map provides both the sanctions adopted by the UN as well as those by the EU.
