On May 19, the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) issued a final rule to amend the Terrorism List Governments Sanctions Regulations to implement changes resulting from the Secretary of State’s December 14, 2020 rescission of the designation of Sudan as a State Sponsor of Terrorism. The amendments relate to “removing one general license in full and amending another general license to remove references to the Government of Sudan and Sudanese nationals because financial transactions with the Government of Sudan are no longer prohibited by the Terrorism List Governments Sanctions Regulations.” The rule went into effect on May 20 immediately upon publication in the Federal Register.
