President Michel Temer signed a bill on Friday (15 June) that would require Brazil to comply with the sanctions imposed by United Nations Security Council resolutions, such as trade embargoes and designations of individuals or entities investigated or accused of terrorism or related acts, such as the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, as subject to UN sanctions.

According to the bill, which will now be submitted to National Congress, resolutions and designations approved by the Security Council would no longer require official ratifications in the country in order to produce effect on the national territory, and therefore become enforceable immediately.
