How to apply for a derogation from freezing assets?

The General Administration of Treasury can grant on request derogations from financial sanctions.

The financial and non-financial institutions are obliged to check if they have funds on behalf of persons and entities concerned by the regulations. In this case, they must apply the imposed freezing measures and inform immediately the Treasury of that fact. The aforementioned institutions must also tell the General Administration of Treasury if they keep funds on behalf of these persons and entities.

With each new addition of persons or entities, each institution must analyse them in order to determine if they keep funds on behalf of these persons or entities.


The requests as regards the authorisation for the release or transfer of funds and economic assets must mention the following information: 

  1. The regulation and the article concerned
  2. The identity of the debtor/instructing party
  3. The identity of the creditor/beneficiary
  4. The amount and the currency unit for which the release is requested;
  5. The motive for the request for derogation;
  6. The data as regards the banks and the institutions concerned by this operation;
  7. The date of the agreement, the convention or the obligation pursuant to which the payment is possibly due;
  8. The supporting documents allowing the General Administration of Treasury to carry out checking (for instance a copy of the invoice);
  9. In case of transfer of goods - the description of the nature of the goods (for instance the information sheet)
  10. In case of transfer of weapons or dual use goods, the following authorisations:
