South African Targeted Financial Sanctions

The South African FIC sanctions list, largely based on UN Security Council sanctions.

South African sanctions are largely based on the UN Security Council sanctions list, with some additions.

Sanctions impose restrictions on activities that relate to particular countries, goods and services, or persons and entities. Targeted Financial Sanctions (TFS) measures generally restrict sanctioned persons and entities from having access to funds and property under their control and from receiving financial services in relation to such funds and property. In order for these sanctions to be given effect, the FIC Act requires Accountable Institutions to freeze property and transactions pursuant to financial sanctions imposed in the United Nations Security Council Resolutions.
