The Blackstone's Guide Series delivers concise and accessible books covering the latest legislative changes and amendments. Published soon after enactment, they offer expert commentary by leading names on the scope, extent, and effects of the legislation, plus a copy of the Act itself. They offer a cost-effective solution to key information needs and are the perfect companion for any practitioner needing to get up to speed with the latest changes. Following the UK withdrawal from the European Union, the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2018 was enacted to enable the UK to continue to implement a regime originating in the EU. This book covers the implementation of a new system for the enforcement of sanctions, including a new mechanism for an appropriate minister to review listings of designated persons and a mechanism for review of that ministerial decision by the High Court. This guide covers the background and Parliamentary scrutiny through to enactment. It offers an approachable commentary to the statute, enabling practitioners to get to grips with the key provisions and the implications for practice. As with all Blackstone's Guides, this book will be in two parts; the first providing detailed commentary on the effects and scope of the Act and the second providing a full copy of the Act itself.
