             (1)  The regulations may prescribe specified goods as UN-sanctioned goods.

             (2)  Regulations made for the purposes of subsection (1) may provide that specified goods are only UN-sanctioned goods if:

                     (b)  the origin, or the final destination, of the goods is a specified place; or

                     (c)  other specified circumstances apply in relation to the goods.

             (3)  The regulations must not prescribe goods for the purposes of subsection (1) unless:

                     (a)  either:

                              (i)  the importation of the goods is prohibited, either absolutely or on condition, by the Customs (Prohibited Imports) Regulations 1956 ; or

                             (ii)  the exportation of the goods is prohibited, either absolutely or on condition, by the Customs (Prohibited Exports) Regulations 1958 ; and

                     (b)  the regulation under which that importation or exportation is prohibited gives effect to a decision that:

                             (ii)  Article 25 of the Charter requires Australia to carry out;

                            in so far as that decision requires Australia to apply measures not involving the use of armed force.

             (4)  For the purposes of paragraph (3)(b), a regulation may be taken to give effect to a decision:

                     (a)  whether or not it is made for the sole purpose of giving effect to the decision; and
