(a) the Flag State of a designated vessel shall de-flag the vessel;
(b) the Flag State of a designated vessel shall direct the vessel to a port identified by the Committee, in coordination with the port State;
(c) all Member States shall prohibit a designated vessel from entering their ports, unless in case of emergency, in case of return to the vessel’s port of origination, or in case of direction by the Committee;
(d) a vessel designated by the Committee shall be subject to the asset freeze imposed in paragraph 8 (d) of resolution 1718 (2006).

The Committee further wishes to recall the decision of the Security Council that all Member States shall prohibit the entry into their ports of the vessels designated pursuant to paragraph 6 of resolution 2371 (2017), unless the Committee determines in advance that such entry is required for humanitarian purposes or any other purposes consistent with the objectives of relevant resolutions.
