The Financial Analytical Office is responsible for the coordination of the implementation of international sanctions in the Czech Republic:
The implementation of international sanctions in the Czech Republic is governed by Act No. 69/2006 Sb., on the Implementation of International Sanctions (International Sanctions Act), and Act No. 70/2006 Sb., amending selected acts in relation to the adoption of the International Sanctions Act.
The Office is the Czech national competent authority (NCA), responsible for the coordination of the implementation of international sanctions (restrictive measures) imposed for the purpose of maintaining or restoring international peace and security, protecting fundamental human rights and fighting terrorism. Depending on the type of the restrictive measure, other ministries and government agencies may be responsible for the 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 EU member states 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 authority of the relevant country. The Office 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 legislation are available in the EUR-Lex database.
The Financial Analytical Office published a manual for academic and research institutions addressing restrictions on technical assisstance and intangible transfer of technology in the context of EU sanctions. The document is available for download.
If you credibly find out you have assets located in the Czech Republic that are subject to international sanctions, you are obliged under section 10 of the International Sanctions Act to inform the Office without undue delay.
