As directed by the NSPM, on November 9, 2017, the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) published a final rule in the Federal Register amending the CACR, 31 CFR PO 00000 Frm 00125 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57523 part 515, and the Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published a final rule in the Federal Register amending, among other sections, the section of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) regarding Cuba, 15 CFR part 746. The regulatory amendment to the CACR added § 515.209, which generally prohibits direct financial transactions with certain entities and subentities identified on the State Department’s Cuba Restricted List, which the State Department is updating as published below, and accessible on the State Department’s website. The regulatory amendment to the EAR, specifically § 746.2, notes BIS will generally deny applications to export or reexport items for use by entities or subentities identified on the Cuba Restricted List. (http://www.state.gov/e/eb/tfs/spi/cuba/ cubarestrictedlist/index.htm). This update includes 26 newly identified subentities and five amendments to previously-listed subentities including three name-changes, one new alias, and one typographical correction (the subentity ‘‘Hotel Palacio del Marque´s de San Felipe y Santiago de Bejucal (Habaguanex)’’ was incorrectly split between two lines).
