イラン経済制裁:適用除外の打ち切り

イラン経済制裁:適用除外の打ち切り

2018年11月のクラブ回覧16/18にて、米国政府がイラン産の原油、石油製品、液化ガスおよび石油化学製品の輸入・輸送を対象とする米国の二次的制裁を再開するが、中国、ギリシャ、インド、イタリア、日本、韓国、台湾、トルコの8カ国のイラン産原油の輸入を2019年5月2日まで適用除外(SREs)と認める特例をお伝えしました。しかし米国国務省は同年5月2日以降はこの適用除外を延長しないことを発表したため、同日以降にイラン産原油を輸入または輸送した場合、米国の制裁違反として扱われる可能性があります。

As reported in Circular 16/18 when U.S. secondary sanctions were re-imposed against the purchase and carriage of Iranian crude oil, petroleum products, liquified gases and petrochemicals, in November 2018, eight countries - China, Greece, India, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and Turkey – were granted waivers, known as Significant Reduction Exemptions (“SREs”), to permit the import of limited amounts of Iranian crude oil up to 2 May 2019.

Members should be aware that the U.S. State Department has announced that these SREs will not be renewed beyond 2 May 2019. In a further clarification provided to the Club’s US legal advisors, the State Department has advised that voyages with shipments pursuant to the existing SREs must be completed within that 2 May deadline. Any purchase or carriage of Iranian crude cargoes after 2 May 2019 is therefore likely to be treated as a breach of U.S. sanctions, with all the risks which that involves.  

Should you have any detailed enquiries regarding the effect of sanctions on the operation of the Club, or the cover it provides, please contact Nigel Carden (Tel: +44 20 7204 2147; Email: nigel.carden@thomasmiller.com)
