Answer

Thank you for your question.

Although many embargos are different (and may be brought into force by different entities), the ECO website carries the following explanation:

“An arms embargo is a prohibition or sanction against the export of weaponry and dual-use items – goods which have both a civil and military use. An arms embargo might be imposed via various routes such as by the UN, EU or OSCE and where the UK has imposed regulations as a result.”
(https://www.gov.uk/guidance/current-arms-embargoes-and-other-restrictions)

The Export Control Order of 2008 carries the following definition:
““embargoed destination” means a country listed in Part 1 or 2 of Schedule 4;” [of the order]
