Lists associated with Resolutions 1267/1989/2253 and 1988

The UNSC 1267/1989/2253 and 1988 Committees specifically obliges New Zealand to take action against those terrorist entities it lists. These UNSC-listed entities [ISIL (Daesh), Al-Qaida and the Taliban and associated individuals and organisations] are included as designated terrorist entities in the TSA.

These are available in three formats (current as at 25 April 2024).

For more information on UNSC lists and associated entities, please also check the relevant UN websites:

Any individual or group listed by the United Nations may apply to remove their name from the list. A New Zealand resident or citizen or any group whose members have New Zealand citizenship or residency may submit a request for delisting through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade or directly to the Office of the Ombudsperson.

Application for revocation of the designation

A designated entity or a third party with an interest in the designation can apply to the Prime Minister for revocation of the designation (s 34 TSA).

An application must be based on the grounds set out at s 34(3) TSA. Those are:

(a) That the designation should not stand because the entity concerned does not satisfy the test stated in s 20(1) or (3) (for interim designations) or s 22(1) or (3) (for final designations);
(b) That the entity concerned is no longer involved in any way in acts of the kind that made, or that would make, the entity eligible for designation.

Applications should be directed to:

Prime Minister
Executive Wing
Parliament Buildings
Wellington 6160

The TSA also allows a designation to be judicially reviewed (s 33).
