Effective Jan. 17, 2017, the U.S. government significantly eased restrictions on transactions between U.S. persons and Sudan, against which comprehensive sanctions had previously been in place. Specifically, on Jan. 13, 2017, President Obama issued an Executive Order (EO), “Recognizing Positive Actions by the government of Sudan and Providing for the Revocation of Certain Sudan-Related Sanctions,” which added a new Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) general license (GL) authorizing all transactions previously prohibited under the Sudanese Sanctions Regulations (SSR). The new GL is valid for a period of six months. Provided the government of Sudan sustains the “positive actions” that led to the move, the EO provides for the final termination of the SSR July 12, 2017.
