Iran Sanctions Reimposed and Expanded

Iran Sanctions Reimposed and Expanded


By: Michael T. Gershberg, Justin A. Schenck

On August 6, 2018, President Trump issued an executive order, Reimposing Certain Sanctions with Respect to Iran (the EO) reimposing certain sanctions that had been revoked in accordance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and adding new sanctions that are more restrictive than those that existed before the JCPOA.  The EO implements the first wave of reimposed sanctions, effective August 7, 2018, pursuant to President Trump's decision to withdraw from the JCPOA, on which we have previously reported.  The United States is continuing its stated policy of applying economic pressure on Iran to force a change in Iranian behavior, including pressing for a more favorable nuclear deal.
