 Publication of Amended Global Terrorism Sanctions Regulations

​The Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is amending the Global Terrorism Sanctions Regulations, 31 C.F.R. part 594 (GTSR), to apply the blocking provisions of the GTSR to foreign persons that have been identified by OFAC as officials, agents, or affiliates of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).  This amendment will take effect upon publication in the Federal Register on Tuesday, October 31, 2017.

OFAC is amending the GTSR pursuant to section 105(b) of the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act of 2017 (CAATSA) as it relates to officials, agents, or affiliates of the IRGC.  Further information about CAATSA, including updates to two frequently asked questions related to section 105 of CAATSA, can be found on OFAC’s CAATSA page: https://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/sanctions/Programs/Pages/caatsa.aspx.
