U.S. Antiboycott Compliance: New Federal List Published

By Melissa Miller Proctor

The Treasury Department recently published its quarterly list of countries that currently require participation or cooperation with an international boycott, such as the Arab League’s boycott of Israel. Even though many of these countries are WTO members and were required to shut down their Arab League offices as a condition of membership, many boycott-related requests are still being issued by government agencies and companies in these countries. The countries that are designated on this list, which by the way are the very same countries that were listed in the Third Quarter list, are:

  • Iraq
  • Kuwait
  • Lebanon
  • Libya
  • Qatar
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Syria
  • United Arab Emirates
  • Yemen
