The UK, US, Japan and Canada announced a co-ordinated import ban on Russian gold at the G7 Summit, which commenced on the 26 June 2022. Gold is reportedly one of Russia’s biggest exports, worth £12.6 billion to the Russian economy in 2021.

On the 21 July 2022, the UK passed The Russia (Sanctions) (EU Exit) (Amendment) (No.14) Regulations 2022, which implements the prohibition on the import of gold from Russia. It also prohibits the acquisition, supply and delivery, provision of technical assistance, financial services and funds, and brokering services relating to gold.

The rest of the world:

On the 15 August 2022, the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade announced that it had published draft legislation which would implement a ban on Russian gold and gold products. The legislation would not cover gold that has been exported prior to the enforcement of the legislation. The legislation is likely to come into force imminently, after the consultation into the draft legislation ended on the 29 August 2022.

On the 25 July 2022, Japan stood by its G7 commitment and announced a ban on the imports of gold and gold products from Russia, effective from 1 August 2022.

On the 21 July 2022, the EU adopted its seventh package of sanctions, dubbed the “maintenance and alignment” package, which includes a ban on buying, importing or transporting gold and gold products from Russia. Any services in connection with Russian gold is also prohibited. Switzerland adopted the seventh package on the 3 August 2022, including the ban on the import of Russian gold and gold products.

On the 14 July 2022, Canada stood by its G7 commitment and implemented the ban on imports of gold and gold products from Russia.

On the 28 June 2022, the US Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), in consultation with the Department of State and the Department of Commerce, implemented the G7 commitment to ban Russian imports of gold.
