SECURITY COUNCIL AL-QAIDA, TALIBAN SANCTIONS COMMITTEE REVISES ITS GUIDELINES
Following intensive efforts by all its members, the Al-Qaida and Taliban Sanctions Committee on 29 November revised its guidelines for the conduct of its work. The revision concerns section 6 of the guidelines dealing with listing procedures. The Committee trusts that the revised guidelines will serve as a better tool for rationalizing its own work and provide useful guidance to Member States in their implementation efforts.
Pursuant to paragraph 18 of resolution 1617 (2005), the Committee intends to complete its work with respect to the revision of delisting procedures as soon as possible.
The revised guidelines can be found at the Committee’s website: http://www.un.org/Docs/sc/committees/1267/1267ListEng.htm.
A note by the Chairman of the Committee officially transmitting the revised guidelines to all States and relevant international and regional organizations will follow shortly.
