560 – IRAN ITR – SDN List + This non-exhaustive appendix lists persons determined by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (‘‘OFAC’’) to be the Government of Iran, as defined in § 560.304 of this part. The persons listed below are considered to be the Government of Iran not only when they operate from the locations listed below, but also when they operate from any other location. The names and addresses are subject to change. This part 560 contains prohibitions against engaging in most transactions with persons that meet the definition of the Government of Iran, whether such persons are located or incorporated inside or outside of Iran. Moreover, regardless of whether a person is listed below, if the person comes within the definition of Government of Iran in § 560.304, the prohibitions on engaging in transactions with the person, wherever located worldwide, apply to the same extent they would apply if the person were listed in this appendix. Note that the prohibitions in this part 560 also apply to most transactions with persons located in Iran that are not the Government of Iran. The names of persons listed in this appendix also are included on OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List (‘‘SDN List’’) with the identifier ‘‘[IRAN].’’ Although there is no requirement to block the property and interests of property of persons listed in this appendix, U.S. persons are cautioned that entities identified as owned or controlled by the Government of Iran also may be designated or blocked pursuant to additional sanctions programs administered by OFAC. The entry for a person’s name in this appendix and on the SDN List may include—in addition to the identifier ‘‘[IRAN]’’—identifier(s) for the other sanctions program(s) pursuant to which the person is listed on the SDN List (e.g., ‘‘[IRAN] [NPWMD]’’ or ‘‘[IRAN] [SDGT]’’).
