EU list of persons, groups and entities subject to specific measures with a view to combating terrorism

- Adoption of a new consolidated list

The Council carried out a detailed re-examination of the EU list of persons and entities involved in terrorist acts (Common Position 2001/931/CFSP and Council Regulation (EC) No 2580/2001[7]).

In the light of that re-examination, the Council unanimously adopted a Common Position updating Common Position 2001/931/CFSP on the application of specific measures with a view to combating terrorism.

It also unanimously adopted a Decision concerning the persons and entities listed under Regulation (EC) No 2580/2001 on specific restrictive measures directed against certain persons and entities with a view to combating terrorism.

The specific information on which this Council Decision is based will be communicated to the parties concerned by means of a "letter of notification"[8].

The parties concerned may ask the Council to re-examine their cases on the basis of documentary

evidence. The persons and entities subject to restrictive measures under Council Regulation (EC) No 2580/2001 may also contest the Council's decision before the Court of First Instance, pursuant to the fourth and fifth paragraphs of Article 230 of the Treaty establishing the European Community.

The above two acts, including the new consolidated lists, will be published in the Official Journal of the European Union.
