Overview Australia has two types of sanctions regimes:
1. The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) sanctions regimes which are primarily implemented under the Charter of the United Nations Act 1945 and its regulations. There is a separate set of regulations for each UNSC sanctions regime.
2. Australian autonomous sanction regimes are primarily carried out under the Autonomous Sanctions Act 2011 and its regulation. These autonomous sanctions regimes are implemented as a matter of foreign policy, and may supplement UNSC sanctions regimes, or be separate from them.

Australian sanction laws apply broadly, including to activities in Australia, and to overseas activities by both Australian citizens and Australian registered bodies corporate.

The legislation is relevant to the University as it targets the provision of services (e.g. technical advice, assistance or training) that the University may provide to students, affiliates or visitors from countries subject to a sanction regime.
