Frequently Asked Questions

857. Do the prohibitions in Executive Order (E.O.) 13959, as amended, apply to purchases or sales of publicly traded securities of subsidiaries of entities listed on the Non-SDN Chinese Military-Industrial Complex Companies List (the “NS-CMIC List”) 

Answer

The prohibitions in E.O. 13959, as amended, apply to a subsidiary of a Chinese Military-Industrial Complex Company (CMIC) listed on the NS-CMIC List only if such subsidiary itself is publicly listed on the NS-CMIC List by Treasury pursuant to E.O. 13959, as amended, or identified in the Annex of E.O. 13959, as amended.  OFAC’s 50 percent rule does not apply to entities listed solely pursuant to E.O. 13959, as amended.  Accordingly, the prohibitions on any subsidiaries listed on the NS-CMIC List would go into effect beginning 12:01 a.m. eastern time on the date that is 60 days after such subsidiary is added to the NS-CMIC List.
