On May 30, 2013, the U.S. government issued a General License on the export of electronic devices such as, cellphones, laptops, computers, and wireless routers to Iran. This effectively ended a ban that has been in place since 1992. According to the Department of Treasury’s press release “this General License aims to empower the Iranian people as their government intensifies its efforts to stifle their access to information.” Pursuant to 31 C.F.R. Part 560 the General License does not authorize the export of any listed equipment to the Iranian government or to any individual or entity on the Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) list.
