In the context of EU export controls, CFSP stands for the EU’s Common Foreign and Security Policy. In line with the CFSP, the EU applies restrictive measures (sanctions) to implement UN Security Council Resolutions or sanction decision of the EU, or to further the objectives of the CFSP. These objectives include promoting international peace and security, preventing conflicts, defending the principles of international law, and supporting democracy, the rule of law, and human rights.
The term “CFSP list” is commonly used to refer to the EU’s Consolidated Financial Sanctions Party List. It is the consolidated list of persons, groups, and entities subject to EU financial sanctions. The CFSP list is managed by the EU’s Directorate-General for Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union (DG FISMA) and regularly updated. This consolidated list of persons, groups, and entities subject to EU financial sanctions (CFSP list) reflects the officially adopted texts of financial sanctions published in the Official Journal of the EU.
