This past October, the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) made sweeping changes to many of the regulations concerning the trade embargo on Iran.
The new provisions in the Iranian Transactions and Sanctions Regulations (ITSR) can significantly impact Iranian Americans who still maintain assets as well as financial and other ties to Iran.
The objective of this presentation is to educate and update the audience on key elements of the ITSR as they affect Iranian Americans, such as their regulations on investment in Iran, asset divestiture and funds transfer, as well as export trade with Iran.
