EU Regulation 833/2014 and UK (Regulation 46IA & 46IB - Russia

The European Union (EU) and United Kingdom (UK) have imposed various Sanctions on Russia since Russia´s Anexation of the Crimea Region in 2014. Since then the EU/UK/US have strengthened and extended these sanctions especially after Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022. These Sanctions have been published in EU Regulation 833/2014 and UK (Regulation 46IA & 46IB).

Further new Sanctions on the import of Russian iron and steel products processed in a third country or multiple third countries have been established, these have been effective since September 30th, 2023. Both EU & UK Regulations share a list of Customs Tariff Codes dedicated to iron and steel products which are banned through the aforementioned Regulations.

Acal BFi had stopped the Import and Export of Products originating from Russia a few years ago when the first Sanctions after Russia´s Anexation of Crimea became effective.

We will of course also comply with the latest amendment on Sanctions which prohibit the purchase, import, or transfer, directly or indirectly, of iron and steel products if they originate in Russia or are exported from Russia or Russian iron and steel products processed in a third/multiple third countries.

As a solutions provider, Acal BFi has to rely on the information received from Suppliers. We are checking on Countries of Origin and Import to ensure compliance with the EU & UK Sanctions. In addition, we request confirmation statements from all suppliers outside the EU & UK delivering iron and steel products to us that they comply with EU Regulation 833/2014 (Article 3g and Annex XVII) and UK Regulation 46IA & 46IB (Chapter 4CA of Part 5 of Schedule 3B).
