SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On June 16, 2017, the President signed the National Security Presidential Memorandum on Strengthening the Policy of the United States Toward Cuba (NSPM). As required by the NSPM, on November 9, 2017 the Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is publishing a final rule in the Federal Register amending the CACR, 31 CFR part 515, and the Department of Commerce's Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is publishing a final rule in the Federal Register amending, among other sections, the section of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) regarding Cuba, 15 CFR part 746. The regulatory amendment to the CACR adds new 515.209, which generally prohibits direct financial transactions with certain entities and subentities identified on the State Department's Cuba Restricted List, published below, and accessible on the State Department's Web site. The regulatory amendment to the EAR, specifically 746.2 notes BIS will generally deny applications to export or reexport items for use by entities or subentities identified on the Cuba Restricted List. (http://www.state.gov/e/eb/tfs/spi/cuba/cubarestrictedlist/index.htm). The State Department will update the Cuba Restricted List periodically.

The publication of the Cuba Restricted List implements the directive in paragraph 3(a)(i) of the NSPM for the Secretary of State to identify the entities or subentities, as appropriate, that are under the control of, or act for or on behalf of, the Cuban military, intelligence, or security services or personnel, and publish a list of those identified entities and subentities with which direct financial transactions would disproportionately benefit such services or personnel at the expense of the Cuban people or private enterprise in Cuba.

Electronic Availability

This document and additional information concerning the Cuba Restricted List are available from the Department of State's Web site (http://www.state.gov/e/eb/tfs/spi/cuba/).
