Updated guidance to the asset freeze provisions
Published: 18 March 2022
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Finanstilsynet have updated the guidance to the asset freeze provisions. The updated version was made available in April 2018. The original guidance was published in June 2016 and is intended to make it easier to understand the financial sanctions to be observed by Norwegian market players.
Some minor changes and clarifications have been made, partly based on feedback from users of the guidance.
In addition to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Finanstilsynet, the Ministry of Justice and Public Security, Økokrim (the Norwegian National Authority for Investigation and Prosecution of Economic and Environmental Crime), the Norwegian Police Security Service, Finance Norway, Nordea and DNB were involved in the work on the guidance to the asset freeze provisions.
