U.S. updated FAQs related to Sudanese sanctions

The U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) today issued a release concerning Sudan and Darfur.

U.S. persons are no longer prohibited from engaging in transactions with respect to Sudan or the government of Sudan that were previously prohibited by the U.S. Sudanese sanctions regulations.  However, the national emergency declared with respect to Sudan in Executive Order (E.O.) 13067 remains in effect, as expanded upon in scope by subsequent executive orders to include the violence in Sudan’s Darfur region. This national emergency provides the basis for OFAC’s sanctions on individuals and entities in connection with the conflict in Darfur. Additionally, Sudan remains on the state sponsors of terrorism list. Accordingly, certain prohibitions and licensing considerations still apply with respect to Sudan.

Today’s OFAC release announces:

  • Sudan program and Darfur sanctions guidance
  • A new “frequently asked question” (FAQ) on sanctions that remain applicable to Sudan and the government of Sudan
  • The removal of certain Sudan-related FAQs
  • Amended FAQs concerning the “Trade Sanctions Reform and Export Enhancement Act of 2000” as it applies to Sudan
  • Amended general and compliance FAQs to reflect that Sudan has not been a comprehensively sanctioned country since October 12, 2017
