Hi everyone:

The 2020 move of the EU sanctions topic to DG FISMA makes a big difference I think and the ambitious action points related to sanctions in the EU Commission Strategy issued January 2021 reflect that.

Here they come:

- Action point 10 in 2021, the EU will develop a database, the Sanctions Information Exchange Repository, for reporting and exchange of information between Member States and the Commission on the implementation and enforcement of sanctions.
- Action point 11 : In 2021, the Commission will work with Member States to establish a single contact point for enforcement and implementation issues which have cross-border dimensions.
- And Key action 13: The Commission will set up a dedicated system to allow for anonymous reporting of sanctions’ evasion, including whistleblowing.

Any thoughts on this?
