Background

    On October 22, 2012, OFAC published a final rule in the Federal 
Register (77 FR 64664) that, among other things, amended section 
560.530 of the Iranian Transactions and Sanctions Regulations, 31 CFR 
part 560 (ITSR), to add a general license, in new paragraph (a)(3), 
authorizing the exportation or reexportation of medicine and basic 
medical supplies to Iran. The term ``basic medical supplies'' was 
defined to mean those medical devices, as defined in paragraph (e)(3) 
of section 560.530, that were included on the ``List of Basic Medical 
Supplies'' on the OFAC Web site (www.treasury.gov/ofac) on the Iran 
Sanctions page, but not including replacement parts. On the same day, 
OFAC also posted the List of Basic Medical Supplies on its Web site (78 
FR 54731). OFAC updated the List of Basic Medical Supplies on its Web 
site on July 25, 2013, and subsequently published notice of the update 
in the Federal Register (78 FR 54731).
    On April 7, 2014, OFAC published a final rule in the Federal 
Register (79 FR 18990) that, among other things, updated the definition 
of ``basic medical supplies'' to exclude the word ``basic'' and make 
related conforming changes. Accordingly, the rule further provided that 
the ``List of Basic Medical Supplies'' published on the OFAC Web site 
and in the Federal Register would now be called the ``List of Medical 
Supplies.''
    As highlighted in the note to paragraph (a)(3)(ii) of section 
560.530 of the ITSR, the List of Medical Supplies is maintained on 
OFAC's Web site and will be published in the Federal Register, as will 
any changes to the list. On November 2, 2015, OFAC updated the List of 
Medical Supplies on its Web site to read as follows:
