On November 8, 2017, the Federal Register published Presidential Notice of November 6, 2017 – Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to Iran, which continues for an additional year the national emergency first declared in Executive Order (E.O.) 12170 (November 14, 1979) to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States. The national emergency is being extended because United States relations with Iran have not yet normalized, and the process of implementing the agreements with Iran, dated January 19, 1981, is ongoing. The emergency declared in E.O. 12170 is distinct from the emergency declared in E.O. 12957 on March 15, 1995. This renewal, therefore, is distinct from the emergency renewal of January 13, 2017.
