Iran Sanctions Update 15 August 2018
On August 6, 2018, President Trump issued Executive Order 13846 which re-imposes secondary sanctions that had been suspended pursuant to the JCPOA. For some categories of transactions, however, including those relating to the energy, shipping, shipbuilding and port sectors of Iran, and export of Iranian petroleum and petroleum products, a previously established wind-down period remains in effect until November 4, 2018.
Companies that had resumed trading with Iran will need to reassess whether their trading activities are sanctionable by the US or will become so after November 4, 2018. We attach an update on the re-imposed sanctions from law firm Freehill, Hogan & Mahar with further details and insight regarding President Trump's Executive Order 13846. The update is linkedhere.
