Iranian banks, shipping companies and aerospace firms and the country’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) were the key targets of European Union sanctions. Ten groups of banks, six aerospace companies, and 24 firms linked to the Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines (IRISL), and the entire IRGC had their assets frozen by the EU decision.

Seventeen companies located at Moscow, Kabul, Jersey and the Cayman Islands, but all linked with Iran’s Bank Melli, which was placed under sanctions in 2008, also had their assets frozen. Affiliated institutions to Bank Melli are Arian Bank, Asa Company, Kargoshaei Bank, Bank Melli Iran Investment Company, Printing House of Bank Melli, Cement Investment Development Company, Northern Cement Company, Mazandaran Cement Company, and Mazandaran Textile Company.
