We value the insights and information NGOs can provide in respect of the sanctions regime. We intend to set out a clear line of communication between NGOs (and other organisations) and the Government in order to ensure an effective approach to sanctions as a policy tool. We have already published an Information Note on gov.uk aimed at NGOs and civil society organisations, to support dialogue with Government, including on the sharing of information.
