At the end of last week (15 December 2023), new sanctions on trade with Russia came into force. Alongside other sanctions, the new measures extend the UK’s existing import sanctions, by prohibiting the import of Aluminium products as well as the acquisition, supply and delivery, directly or indirectly of these goods. This measure will now ban the direct imports of all aluminium goods under Chapter 76 from Russia.
There is an exception for goods which were consigned from Russia before 15 December 2023 and are imported into the UK before 14 January 2024. These sanctions can be found in The Russia (Sanctions) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, as amended. A licence may be available if it relates to the execution of obligations arising from contracts concluded before 15 December 2023.
