The implementation of International Sanctions in the Czech Republic is governed by Act No. 69/2006 Sb., on Implementation of International Sanctions (International Sanctions Act) and Act No. 70/2006 Sb., amending selected acts in relation to the adoption of International Sanctions Act.
The FAU is the Czech national competent authority (NCA), responsible for the coordination of implementation of international sanctions imposed for the purpose of maintaining or restoring international peace and security, protecting fundamental human rights and fighting terrorism. Depending on the type of restrictive measure other ministries and government agencies are responsible for implementation of restrictive measures in their area of competence.
Only International Sanctions adopted by the United Nations and the European Union are binding in the Czech Republic (see section 2 of the International Sanctions Act). National Sanctions imposed by third countries or other Member States of the European Union are not legally binding and enforceable in the Czech Republic.
Questions or requests regarding third countries’ national sanctions should be addressed to the respective foreign mission or other competent authorities of the relevant country. The FAU is not competent to interpret such legislation.
Basic information on the scope of International Sanctions applicable in the Czech Republic is available at the EU Sanctions Map. Legally binding texts of International Sanctions are available in the EUR-Lex database.
If you learn you have property situated in the Czech Republic which is subject to International Sanctions you are obliged under section 10 of the International Sanctions Act to inform the FAU without undue delay.
