United Nation Security Council and Australian targeted sanctions on North Korea
Australia enforces both United Nations Security Council (UNSC) as well as autonomously imposed sanctions that restricts a range of activities with North Korea and with North Korean individuals and entities.
If you are considering commercial or other dealings with North Korea we recommend that you familiarise yourself with the operation of these sanctions. We also recommend you obtain independent legal advice before making commercial decisions involving trade or commercial transactions with North Korea.
