Tortola, British Virgin Islands – 13 August 2014 - The British Virgin Islands Financial Services Commission (the “FSC”) is advising the public that on 13th June 2013, The Burma (Sanctions) (Overseas Territories) Order 2013 (the “Order”) was ratified and extended to the Territory.

On 22 April 2013, by Decision 2013/184/CFSP the Council of the European Union decided to revoke sanctions in respect of Burma except for the embargoes on the supply of arms and related materiel and equipment which might be used for internal repression, together with the prohibition on the provision of technical assistance and military assistance related to such goods. This Order revokes and replaces the Burma (Restrictive Measures) (Overseas Territories) Order 2009 and the Burma (Restrictive Measures) (Overseas Territories) (Suspension) Order 2012 previously extended to the Territory.
