Last Round of INA Nonpro Sanctions to Expire Monday

The (last ever) round of nonproliferation sanctions levied under the “Iran Nonproliferation Act of 2000”:http://www.state.gov/t/isn/c15234.htm (referred to as INPA, although I still like “INA” more) on “28 July 2006”:http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/getdoc.cgi?dbname=2006_register&docid=%5BDOCID:fr04au06-119%5D is set to expire this coming Monday for the companies listed below.

*These three kids can play ball:*

* Cuba’s Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology
* India’s Balaji Amines
* India’s Prachi Poly Products

Just a note that INA sanctions against India’s Sabero Organics Gujarat Ltd and Sandhya Organics Ltd (“which ACW blogged about back in 2005”:http://www.armscontrolwonk.com/919/indian-firms-sanctioned-for-chemical-sale-to-iran) expired last December.

*These two kids from the DPRK will have to sit it out on the bench for a little (or a lot?) while longer:*

* Korea Pugang Trading Corporation
* Korean Mining and Industrial Development Corporation (KOMID)

Though their INA sanctions expire on Monday too, they are still sanctioned as part of “Executive Order 13382”:http://www.state.gov/t/isn/c22080.htm. The latter “enterprise” is also sanctioned according to provisions of the “AECA/EAA”:http://www.state.gov/t/isn/c15232.htm, the “Iran and Syria Nonproliferation Act or ISNA”:http://www.state.gov/t/isn/c20760.htm, and “Executive Order 12938”:http://www.state.gov/t/isn/c15233.htm.

*And last but not least:*

* Rosoboronexport — though its INA sanctions expire, it has to wait for a clean slate until 28 December, when its “ISNA sanctions”:http://a257.g.akamaitech.net/7/257/2422/01jan20071800/edocket.access.gpo.gov/2007/E6-22630.htm are set to run out. (Unless, of course, I was wrong “about the S-300”:http://www.totalwonkerr.net/1669/dreaming-of-an-s-300 and Rosoboronexport gets itself into trouble again.)

_Bye-bye INA!_
