The Al-Qaida Sanctions Committee (previously known as the Al-Qaida and Taliban Sanctions Committee), was established on 15 October 1999, pursuant to UN Security Council Resolution 1267 concerning Osama bin Laden, Al-Qaeda and/or the Taliban and associated individuals and entities and has subsequently been modified to deal with issues limited to Al-Qaeda. The Al-Qaeda Sanctions Committee is one of three Security Council committees dealing with counter-terrorism. The other two committees are the Counter-Terrorism Committee established pursuant to Security Council resolution 1373 (2001), and the Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolution 1540 (2004).
Resolution 1267 (1999) and subsequent resolutions have all been adopted under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter and require all UN Member States to, inter alia: "freeze the assets of, prevent the entry into or transit through their territories by, and prevent the direct or indirect supply, sale and transfer of arms and military equipment to any individual or entity associated with Al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden and/or the Taliban as designated by the Committee".
On 17 June 2011, resolution 1989 was adopted so that the sanctions measures now apply to designated individuals and entities associated solely with Al-Qaeda. On this same date, resolution 1988 was adopted, creating a new committee dealing exclusively with sanctions relating to the Taliban.
