Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 3 October 2003, amend the United Nations Sanctions (Iraq) Regulations 1991 by revoking a provision prohibiting certain transactions relating to assets, money, and securities held in New Zealand by the Government of Iraq. It is unnecessary to keep this provision in force any longer in light of the full implementation (in other regulations) of a recent resolution of the Security Council in relation to Iraq.

Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989.

Date of notification in Gazette: 4 September 2003.
