Authorizing the Implementation of Certain Sanctions Set Forth in the Iran Sanctions Act of 1996, as Amended
On May 23, 2011, the President signed Executive Order (“E.O.”) 13574, “Authorizing the Implementation of Certain
Sanctions Set Forth in the Iran Sanctions Act of 1996, as Amended.” E.O. 13574 states that the Secretary of the
Treasury, pursuant to authority under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (“IEEPA”), shall implement
certain sanctions that the Secretary of State imposes and selects under the pre-existing authority of the Iran Sanctions Act
of 1996 (“ISA”) as amended by the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act of 2010
(“CISADA”).
As amended by CISADA, ISA requires the Secretary of State, pursuant to authority delegated by the President, to impose
or waive sanctions on persons determined to have made certain investments in Iran’s energy sector or to have engaged
in certain activities relating to Iran’s refined petroleum sector. E.O. 13574 provides IEEPA implementation and
enforcement authority for the five ISA sanctions that regulate private conduct.
Among other sanctions, the Secretary of State has chosen to impose an ISA sanction on the persons listed below that
involves a prohibition on U.S. financial institutions making certain loans or credits as of the following dates:
