Ban on the Import of Iron and Steel of Russian Origin

As part of broader trade sanctions against Russia the UK introduced a ban on iron and steel of Russian origin with effect from 30th September 2023. The UK will enforce a ban on the import of third-country processed iron and steel of Russian origin.

To help businesses comply, the Government has issued guidance which clarifies the ban’s scope and the necessary documentation to demonstrate evidence of a good’s supply chain.

Importers are advised to include non-Russian origin assurances in their contracts. Please see Link for guidance for more details.
