ECC is a multinational coalition including the United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Japan and France with Germany as a recent addition. The Group enforces maritime sanctions as defined by United Nations Security Council resolutions (UNSCR).
Part of the ECC’s mission enforces UNSCR 2375 and 2397, both adopted in 2017, against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK). UNSCR 2375 introduced a full ban on the supply, sale or transfer of all condensates and natural gas liquids to the DPRK after conducting their sixth nuclear test September 3, 2017. UNSCR 2397 was enacted to strengthen the measures regarding the supply, sale or transfer of all refined petroleum products to the DPRK. These measures are taken to persuade DPRK to end its nuclear program.
