In 2016, 38 multilateral arms embargoes were in force: 15 imposed by the United Nations, 22 by the European Union (EU) and 1 by the League of Arab States (see table 15.2).1 Of the EU’s 22 embargoes, 11 implemented UN arms embargoes directly, 3 implemented UN embargoes with modified geographical scope or coverage in terms of the weapon types included and 8 had no UN counterpart.2 The single Arab League arms embargo on Syria had no UN counterpart. Most of these embargoes only cover conventional arms and military goods and services. However, the UN and EU embargoes on Iran and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK, or North Korea) and the EU embargo on Russia also cover certain exports of dual-use items—goods, software and technologies that can be used for both civilian purposes and in connection with conventional, biological, chemical and nuclear weapons, and their delivery systems.3
