The EU sanctions regime against Turkey is currently focused on Turkeys activity in Mediterranean Sea and is based on "Council Regulation (EU) 2019/1890 of 11 November 2019 concerning restrictive measures in view of Turkey’s unauthorised drilling activities in the Eastern Mediterranean."


It is a list-based regime with the following restrictions in place:
