Sanctions Information Notices (SINs) is a procedure with which the SDM provides information on United Nations economic sanctions and European Union restrictive measures in force in the field of merchant shipping. The issuing of SINs is in place since January 2017. Prior to this date, relevant information on UN sanctions and EU restrictive measures was included in SDM Circulars.

Relevant National Law of the Republic of Cyprus:
The Implementation of the Provisions of the Resolutions or Decisions of United Nations Security Council (Sanctions) and of the Decisions and Regulations of the Council of the European Union (Restrictive Measures) Law of 2016, Law 58(I)/2016.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs website (Theme ‘Sanctions’) lists relevant information regarding Sanctions/Restrictive Measures.
