This page shows you where to find all information regarding sanctions regulations, exemptions, notifications and frequently asked questions.

Sanctions regulations

The sanctions regulations in force can be found on the websites of the United Nations, the European Union and the Dutch central government. The EU website includes a searchable database of all persons and entities currently under sanctions. The Dutch central government site includes a list of persons and entities listed under sanctions regulations no. 2007 and no. 2007‑II. 


DNB distributes regular updates on the UN, EU and NL sanctions regimes via email. If you wish to receive sanction updates by mail, please subscribe to our Email service.
Emails are distributed as an extra service of DNB and do not release financial institutions from their responsibility to closely monitor developments in sanctions regulations.


If you find that the identity of a relationship matches that of a natural or legal person, entity or body mentioned in the sanctions regulations (a “hit”), you must notify us immediately. To do so, please use the appropriate reporting template in the Digital Supervision Portal (DLT).


In individual cases (depending on the regulation concerned), exemptions are possible. Decisions on exemptions are at the discretion of the Ministry of Finance. A reasoned request for exemption should be sent to:
