Update on Sanctions Regulations
By PAAIA Government Affairs Office
Aug.26, 2010, Washington, D.C.–Following our report last Thursday that new OFAC regulations require licensing for the importation of commercial products from Iran that were previously exempted from sanctions, we have learned that it is unclear whether the regulations will also apply to importing Iranian goods for personal use. It is also unclear whether the regulations will impact the ability of U.S. based attorneys to take on clients in Iran without specific licensing from OFAC. To address these uncertainties, the Iranian American Bar Association (IABA) has hired member Erich Ferrari, partner at McNabb Ferrari, P.C., to file a request for further interpretation to OFAC. Mr. Ferrari will be assisted by IABA Board Member, Farhad Alavi, partner at The Law Office of Farhad R. Alavi, PLLC.
