  Hi Mary -

It seems rather unfortunate (for a busy librarian) that the query 
submitted to you uses the Canadian term of "regulations" - whereas the 
UN usually refers to "implementation of sanctions" -  and without 
providing any  pertinent Security Council resolution number .

There may exist (but I am not aware of) a US online source which 
conveniently lists US sanctions imposed on the countries listed in your 
query (comparable to the "Canadian Economic Sanctions" page of Foreign 
Affairs and Int'l Trade Canada). However, there are certain UNBISnet 
search terms that will probably retrieve most US authored UN documents 
describing how the US implemented certain UN sanctions by law or in 
other ways (I have some experience with sanction related research 
questions from past reference work):

At  http://unbisnet.un.org/
--select a "New Keyword Search"
-- search for AUTHOR:  United States [Match as a phrase]
-- search for SUBJECT (ALL):  sanctions compliance [Match as a phrase]
-- search for UN DOC SYMBOL / SALES NOS:  S/AC  [Match as a phrase]
       my comment: the UN document series symbols of the Sanction 
Committees all begin with S/AC ...
This will retrieve 20 UNBISnet records with links to the documents which 
will provide the information you are looking for.

You will also want to consult the UN Security Council Sanctions 
Committee page at <http://www.un.org/sc/committees/> for completeness. 
But this might be quite a time consuming affair because the listed 
Committees are not always identified by country or topic but sometimes 
just by SC resolution number. Clicking on a resolution will bring up the 
individual Committee page that will define the Committee's purpose with 
links to "Member States Reports" in most cases.

Best,
Wiltrud
