Imposition of Nonproliferation Measures Against Foreign Persons, 
Including a Ban on U.S. Government Procurement

AGENCY: Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation, 
Department of State.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: A determination has been made that a number of foreign persons 
have engaged in activities that warrant the imposition of measures 
pursuant to Section 3 of the Iran, North Korea, and Syria 
Nonproliferation Act. The Act provides for penalties on entities and 
individuals for the transfer to or acquisition from Iran since January 
1, 1999; the transfer to or acquisition from Syria since January 1, 
2005; or the transfer to or acquisition from North Korea since January 
1, 2006, of goods, services, or technology controlled under 
multilateral control lists (Missile Technology Control Regime, 
Australia Group, Chemical Weapons Convention, Nuclear Suppliers Group, 
Wassenaar Arrangement) or otherwise having the potential to make a 
material contribution to the development of weapons of mass destruction 
(WMD) or cruise or ballistic missile systems. The latter category 
includes (a) items of the same kind as those on multilateral lists but 
falling below the control list parameters when it is determined that 
such items have the potential of making a material contribution to WMD 
or cruise or ballistic missile systems, (b) items on U.S. national 
control lists for WMD/missile reasons that are not on multilateral 
lists, and (c) other items with the potential of making such a material 
contribution when added through case-by-case decisions.

DATES:  Effective Date: December 19, 2014.
