Dear Mary,

To add to Wiltrud's excellent advice, you might also try using "Title and Notes" as we usually add a note field to the records that indicates more clearly the subject of a letter.

In general, these reports on implementation of resolutions are issued as letters from the Permanent Representative of a Member State to the chair of the body established to monitor the resolution.

The note usually refers to the resolution number, and the country affected.

A search for:
Title and Notes: implement* resolution*
Author: "United States"
Type of Material (limit box): B18 letters (not UN Secretary-General)

gives 44 results:

http://unbisnet.un.org:8080/ipac20/ipac.jsp?&menu=search&aspect=subtab124&npp=50&ipp=20&spp=20&profile=bib&ri=&index=.UD&term=&matchopt=0|0&oper=AND&x=14&y=12&aspect=subtab124&index=.TW&term=&matchopt=0|0&oper=AND&index=.TN&term=implement*+resolution*&matchopt=0|0&oper=AND&index=.AW&term=%22united+states%22&matchopt=0|0&limitbox_2=TM01+%3D+tm_b18&ultype=&uloper=%3D&ullimit=&ultype=&uloper=%3D&ullimit=&sort=

To be comprehensive, it may be necessary to identify the resolution number for each item on your list and search by that number in the Title and Notes field.

Please let me know if you have any questions as this type of research can be quite challenging.

Peace,
Susan

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

Good Day,
 
Is there a way to determine whether the United States has passed any laws or regulations to implement  the UN resolutions referred to below? I have tried searching the USC and the CFR, and checked the UN website, but am not having much luck.
 

“Burma Regulations”

“Zimbabwe Regulations “

Regulations Implementing the United Nations Resolutions on the Suppression of Terrorism

The United Nations Al-Qaida and Taliban Regulations

Regulations Implementing the United Nations Resolution on the Democratic People’s  Republic of Korea

Regulations Implementing the United Nations Resolution on Iran

United Nations Cote d’Ivoire Regulations

United nations Democratic Republic of the Congo Regulations

United Nations Liberia Regulations

United Nations Sudan Regulations


 
Thanks for any guidance that might be offered.
