Question reference: E-001024/2020

Under Article 29 TEU, Member States must ensure that their national policies conform to the Union positions; this includes the provisions in Council decisions concerning restrictive measures under the common foreign and security policy (CFSP). It is the responsibility of each Member State concerned to ensure that these measures are properly applied in any given case.

As regards the ‘Sanctions’ formation of the Working Party of Foreign Relations Counsellors (RELEX/Sanctions), its mandate(1) includes exchanging information and experiences and developing best practices, as well as revising and implementing common guidelines to ensure the effective and uniform implementation of EU restrictive measures. Whilst that task can include, as the Honourable Members point out, collecting information available on alleged circumventions of EU restrictive measures by targeted States, persons and entities, the activities of the Working Party must respect the competences of the Member States.

(1)ST 5603/04.
