US NEW SANCTIONS ON IRAN CONSTRUCTION SECTOR

On 1st November, Rferl reported that the US will have additional authority to “prevent Iran from acquiring strategic materials for the IRGC, its construction sector, and its proliferation programmes”, with the sale, supply, or transfer to or from Iran of raw and semi-finished metals, graphite, coal, and software for integrating industrial purposes will be sanctionable if those materials are to be used in connection with the Iranian construction sector.  A factsheet lists the materials affected, which includes stainless steel 304L tubes; MN40 manganese brazing foil; MN70 manganese brazing foil; and stainless steel CrNi60WTi ESR+VAR (chromium, nickel, 60% tungsten, titanium, electro-slag remelting, vacuum arc remelting).
