On 6th August, OFAC announced changes to implement Executive Order 13871, “Imposing Sanctions with Respect to the Iron, Steel, Aluminum, and Copper Sectors of Iran”, as well as several new FAQ (see nos. 666 to 690). The sanctions, provided for in the EO from May, allow for sanctions measures affecting the various sectors and anyone involved in it, including in respect of technical or financial support, transportation etc. Originally announced in May, the 6th August saw the end of the 90-day “wind down” period for implementation.
