On 31 July, pursuant to Council Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/1323 implementing Council Regulation (EU) 204/2011, the EU updated the information for 20 individuals and 16 entities listed under its Libya sanctions regime.

The EU also consolidated the sanctions imposed by Council Decision 2011/137/CFSP, and a number of amending Council Decisions, into Council Decision (CFSP) 2015/1333 and repealed the former Decision.

Also on the same date, pursuant to Council Regulation (EU) 2015/1324 amending Council Regulation (EU) 204/2011, the EU created an exception to its prohibition on arms trade with Libya, permitting the sale of military equipment approved by the UN sanctions committee on Libya to the Libyan government for security or disarmament assistance, provided it will not be used for internal repression.
