In a notice to exporters from 22 March, the ECO announced that its Iran list has been withdrawn, owing to the substantial lifting of EU sanctions on Iran under the JCPOA nuclear deal signed in 2015. The list was designed to provide information relating to certain entities, companies and organization in Iran for exporters concerned about the possible end-use of their goods. Going forward, exporters should use the end-user advice service, accessible through the SPIRE export licensing system.
