OFAC-a-Rama! New Iran Executive Order – plus new/changed Iran, counter-terror, non-proliferation and Venezuela designations

Today, President Trump signed a new Executive Order “Blocking Property of Certain Persons with Respect to the Conventional Arms Activities of Iran”. Here are the new designation authorities:

Section. 1. (a) All property and interests in property that
are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United
States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or
control of any United States person of the following persons are
blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or
otherwise dealt in:
(i) any person determined by the Secretary of State,
in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury, to engage in
any activity that materially contributes to the supply, sale, or
transfer, directly or indirectly, to or from Iran, or for the use
in or benefit of Iran, of arms or related materiel, including spare
parts;
(ii) any person determined by the Secretary of State,
in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury, to provide to
Iran any technical training, financial resources or services,

materiel described in subsection (a)(i) of this section;
(iii) any person determined by the Secretary of State,
in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury, to
have engaged, or attempted to engage, in any activity that
materially contributes to, or poses a risk of materially
contributing to, the proliferation of arms or related materiel or
items intended for military end-uses or military end-users,
including any efforts to manufacture, acquire, possess, develop,
transport, transfer, or use such items, by the Government of Iran
(including persons owned or controlled by, or acting for or on
behalf of the Government of Iran) or paramilitary organizations
financially or militarily supported by the Government of Iran;
(iv) any person determined by the Secretary of the
Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, to have
materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or
technological support for, or goods or services to or in support
of, any person whose property and interests in property are blocked
pursuant to this order; or
(v) any person determined by the Secretary of the
Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, to be owned
