Council Implementing Regulation implementing Article 2(3) of Regulation (EC) No.2580/2001 on specific restrictive measures directed against certain persons and entities with a view to combating terrorism and repealing Implementing Regulation (EU) No.2017/150

1. The attached Council Decision and Council Implementing Regulation provides for the conclusion of the most recent review of the listings under the EU’s counter terrorism asset freezing regime, ‘CP931,’ (EU Common Position 931 of 2001).

2. Common Position 2001/931/CFSP (‘CP931’) was adopted in December 2001 to implement UNSCR 1373 (2001), which introduced an asset freeze and enhanced police and judicial cooperation against persons, groups or entities involved in terrorism. This is a separate regime to the measures introduced via UNSCR 1390 (2002), which specifically target Al-Qaida and the Taliban.

3. The EU Council’s ‘CP931 Working Party’ reviews listings every six months. This is to ensure that listings remain valid. The original legal instruments do not say how long the review should take, only that it should be conducted every 6 months.
