In the July 22, 2015, Federal Register, under Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security Summary of the Final rule “Cuba: Implementing Rescission of State Sponsor of Terrorism Designation”: “This rule amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement the rescission of Cuba’s designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism. Specifically, this rule removes anti-terrorism (AT) license requirements from Cuba and eliminates references to Cuba as a State Sponsor of Terrorism, but maintains preexisting license requirements for all items subject to the EAR unless authorized by a license exception. This rule also removes Cuba from Country Group E:1 (terrorist supporting countries), which makes Cuba eligible for a general 25 percent de minimis level and portions of four license exceptions. The Secretary of State rescinded the designation of Cuba as a State Sponsor of Terrorism on May 29, 2015.” [Con Embargo]
