BIS issues final rule restricting additional exports and reexports to Cuba

On 21 October 2019 the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) issued a final rule amending Cuba-related provisions in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).

The new rule further restricts exports and reexports of items to Cuba, consistent with the Trump administration's goal of decreasing Cuban government revenue and other benefits it derives from exports and reexports. Most significantly, the de minimis threshold for exports to Cuba of non-U.S.-origin items has been reduced from 25 percent to 10 percent controlled U.S.-origin content, putting Cuba in the same category as other comprehensively sanctioned countries (e.g., Iran and North Korea). Other changes include narrowing of License Exception Aircraft, Vessels and Spacecraft (AVS) and License Exception Support for the Cuban People (SCP).
