Frequently Asked Questions

506. Did OFAC make any changes to sanctions with respect to Sudan and the Government of Sudan on July 11, 2017?


No. The President issued an executive order on July 11, 2017, extending the review period established by E.O. 13761 of January 13, 2017, which set forth criteria for the revocation of certain sanctions on Sudan and the Government of Sudan (GOS). The new E.O. extends until October 12, 2017 the period of review of the GOS’ actions. OFAC’s sanctions remain in place, as does the general license broadly authorizing most prohibited transactions with respect to Sudan (the “2017 Sudan Rule”), as described below.
