The Council members include representatives of the Prime Minister’s Chancellery, the Foreign Affairs Ministry, the Justice Ministry, the Ministry of Administration and Interior, the Defence Ministry, the Economy Ministry, the Foreign Trade Department, the Communications Ministry, the Transport Ministry, the Romanian Intelligence Service, the Foreign Intelligence Service, the National Agency for the Control of Exports, the National Bank of Romania, the National Securities Commission, the Insurance Surveillance Commission, the Surveillance Commission for the Private Pensions and the National Office for the Combat of Money Laundering.

The international sanctions refer to the restrictions and obligations related to the governments of other states, to non-state entities, to individuals or legal subjects adopted by the United Nations’ Security Council, the European Union, by other international organisations or by unilateral decisions of Romania or of other states meant to keep international peace and security, to prevent and combat terrorism, to ensure the respect of the fundamental human rights and freedoms, to develop and strengthen democracy and the state of law and to fulfil other goals in accordance with the objectives of the international community, with the international law and with the EU law.

Such sanctions mainly relate to blocking the funds and economic resources, commercial restrictions, restrictions to the operations involving dual-use products and technologies and military products, travel restrictions, diplomatic sanctions, cultural or sports sanctions.
