OFAC removes Sudan Sanctions Regulations

US Treasury BuildingIn October 2017, we reported that the US had revoked economic sanctions with respect to Sudan under Executive Orders 13067 and 13412 (previous blog).

Yesterday (28 June 2018), OFAC removed from the Code of Federal Regulations the Sudanese Sanctions Regulations as a result of the revocation of certain provisions of Executive Order 13067 and the entirety of Executive Order 13412 on which the Regulations had been based.

In addition, OFAC has amended the Terrorism List Government Sanctions Regulations to incorporate a general licence authorising certain transactions related to exports of agricultural commodities, medicines, and medical devices (the licence had previously only appeared on the OFAC website). See OFAC Notice here.
