SanctionsDepartment of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) announced on January 14, 2021, that it had implemented the Secretary of State’s rescission of Sudan as a State Sponsor of Terrorism (SSOT) by amending the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). This rescission of Sudan as an SSOT sees the removal of the license requirement for the export and reexport of items controlled for AT only reasons to Sudan and permits the reexport to Sudan of foreign-manufactured items with up to 25% controlled U.S.- origin content by value. Although exporters and reexporters now have access to a greater range of license exceptions under the EAR based on Sudan’s new placement in Country Group B,  License Exceptions Shipments to Country Group B countries and Technology and Software under Restriction are still not available for exports and reexports destined for Sudan.
