On November 2, 2015, OFAC updated the list of medical supplies eligible for export or reexport to Iran under an ITSR general license. The updated list includes more than 60 additional export-eligible items, including items critical for the care of infants, such as infant warmers and neonatal intensive care devices used in maternity units. Additionally, the types of eligible radiology equipment have been expanded to include the full suite of radiology technology, including MRI machines, X-ray machines, PET machines and similar equipment. This development provides greater opportunities for businesses to engage in permissible sales of medical equipment to Iran and should reduce the number of specific license applications required by medical device exporters.

For additional information, including a full list of items eligible for export under the general license, see the OFAC press release and coverage in PressTV and the AG Trade Law blog.
