Pursuant to Council Decision 2013/685/CFSP, the European Council has relisted the  Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines (“IRISL”) and a number of companies that are  owned by, controlled by, acting on behalf of, or providing essential services to, IRISL.  IRISL and the other companies had their sanctions annulled by the General Court of the  European Union on 16 September 2013. The General Court annulled the listings on the  basis that the Council failed to provide sufficient evidence to show that the named  companies provided support for nuclear proliferation. However, the Council relisted the  companies on the basis of “new statements of reasons concerning each of those entities”. 

As well as IRISL, the relisted entities are: Bushehr Shipping Company Limited, Hafiz Darya  Shipping Lines, Irano Misr Shipping Company, Irinvestship Ltd, IRISL (Malta) Ltd, IRISL  Europe GmbH, IRISL Marine Services and Engineering Company, ISI Maritime Limited,  Khazar Shipping Lines, Marble Shipping Limited, Safiran Payam Darya (SAPID) Shipping  Company, Shipping Computer Services Company, Soroush Saramin Asatir, South Way  Shipping Agency Co. Ltd, and Valfajr 8th Shipping Line. 

The Council also noted that following judgments of the General Court, Iran Transfo,  Sakhte Turbopomp va Kompressor and Oil Turbo Compressor Co. are no longer subject to  restrictive measures.
