U.S. Shocks the World by Withdrawing from Iran Nuclear Agreement; OFAC Issues Important Deadlines for Compliance Suites

May 9, 2018
By: Saskia Rietbroek, Principal, SanctionsAlert.com

On May 8, 2018, President Trump announced that the U.S. would be withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal. The agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was reached in 2015 by Iran and major world powers – U.K., China, France, Germany, Russia and the U.S (the ‘P5’) in hopes of halting Iran’s nuclear capabilities. The decision to withdraw leaves the JCPOA in tatters and creates a host of new challenges for sanctions compliance officers worldwide.

“It has turned my world upside down,” says a compliance officer from an international insurance company.

The U.S. government says it will restore the strict sanctions it imposed on Iran before the 2015 deal and is considering new penalties.
