(418) Iraqi Sanctions Regulations On January 18, 1991, the Department of the Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), published the Iraqi Sanctions Regulations (Regulations) (31 CFR Part 575). 56 Fed. Reg. 2112. The regulations implement Executive Orders 12722 (August 2, 1990) and 12724 (August 9, 1990) relating to certain property and transactions in which the Government of Iraq and persons in Iraq may have an interest. It appears that the provisions of the Executive Orders and Regulations prohibit transactions relating to the filing or prosecution of applications for patents or for registration of trademarks, where an Iraqi interest is involved. The prohibited transactions, however, may be authorized by a specific license issued pursuant to the proceedures described in Section 575.801 of Subpart H of the Regulations. This notice is intended to alert practitioners and applicants to the prohibitions which may apply to matters before the Patent and Trademark Office, (PTO) if Iraqi interests are involved. This notice is further intended to advise that where such interests or potential interests come to the attention of the PTO, an appropriate specific license from OFAC may be required. Jan. 29, 1991 HARRY F. MANBECK, Jr. Commissioner of Patents and Trademarks [1123 OG 37]
