UN-Listed Individuals and Entities Seeking De-listing
Individuals and entities may request for de-listing if they have been listed by the United Nations (UN) Security Council (other than those listed in the UN Security Council Resolutions (UNSCRs) 1267/1989 and 1988) but do not or no longer meet the criteria for designation.
Alternatively, Singapore citizens and Singapore-incorporated entities may choose to send the request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All requests will be assessed by the relevant authorities based on criteria set out in the relevant UNSCRs. At the end of the review, the relevant authorities will inform the requestor.
If an individual or entity has been assessed to not meet or no longer meet the criteria for designation, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will submit a de-listing request to the relevant UN Security Council Committee. Upon successful de-listing by the relevant UN Security Council Committee, the prohibition and freezing provisions in the relevant Financial Services and Markets Regulations and UN Regulations will no longer apply to the individual or entity.
Individuals and Entities Seeking Unfreezing
In exceptional cases, individuals and entities not listed by the UN Security Council as designated individuals or entities may be inadvertently affected by the prohibition and freezing provisions in the Regulations issued pursuant to section 192, read with sections 15(1)(b) and 219(d), of theFinancial Services and Markets Act 2022 or Regulations issued pursuant to section 2(1) of the United Nations Act 2001. For example, an individual or entity could have a name similar to that of a designated individual or entity.
Affected parties may write to MAS at
email@example.com to request for assistance. The request
should include information and supporting documents demonstrating
that they are not a designated individual or entity.
Upon verification, the relevant authorities will work with the affected parties to resolve the issue.
