De-listing and Unfreezing Requests

For United Nations (UN)-Listed Individuals and Entities Seeking De-listing

Individuals and entities who have been listed by the UN (other than those listed under the UN Security Council Resolutions (UNSCRs) 1267/1989 and 1988) but do not or no longer meet the criteria for designation may send their request for de-listing to the UN focal point. More information on the focal point can be found at https://www.un.org/sc/suborg/en/sanctions/delisting/delisting-requests.

Alternatively, Singapore citizens and Singapore-incorporated entities may choose to send their request for de-listing to webmaster@mas.gov.sg. All requests will be assessed by the relevant authorities based on criteria set out in the relevant UNSCRs. At the end of the review, they will be informed of a decision from the relevant authorities in Singapore. If they have been assessed to no longer meet the criteria for designation, a de-listing request to the relevant Security Council Committee will be submitted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Upon successful de-listing by the relevant Security Council Committee, the prohibition and freezing mechanisms under the relevant MAS Regulations and UN Regulations will no longer apply to the individual or entity.

For Individuals and Entities Seeking Unfreezing

In exceptional cases, individuals and entities not listed by the UN as designated individuals or entities may be inadvertently affected by the prohibition or freezing mechanism under the Regulations issued under section 27A(1)(b) of the Monetary Authority of Singapore Act (Cap. 186) or Regulations issued under section 2(1) of the United Nations Act (Cap. 339). For example, an individual or entity could have a name similar to that of a designated individual or entity. Such affected parties may write to MAS at webmaster@mas.gov.sg to request for assistance. The request for assistance should include information and supporting documents demonstrating that they are not a designated person or entity. Upon verification, the relevant authorities will work with the affected parties to clarify and resolve the prohibition or freezing issue.
