OFAC’s Recent Additional Targeting of Iran’s Financial Sector
Date: Friday, October 30, 2020
Time: 11:30 AM – 12:00 PM EST
Duration: 30 minutes
Speaker: Nicole Sayegh Succar
Moderator: Saskia Rietbroek, CSS, Executive Director ACSS
Early October 2020, OFAC identified the Iran financial sector as subject to EO 13902. The action represents an escalation of the sanctions targeting Iran’s financial sector, yet many humanitarian transactions and activities will continue to be authorized. The primary concern will be for those non-US parties operating wholly outside US.
