Except as otherwise authorized, and notwithstanding any contracts entered into or any license or permit granted prior to August 28, 2003, the importation into the United States of any article that is a product of Burma is prohibited.
Note to § 537.203:Section 3(b) of the Burmese Freedom and Democracy Act of 2003 provides that the prohibition contained in this section may be waived by the President for any or all articles that are a product of Burma if the President determines and notifies specified committees of Congress that to do so is in the national interest of the United States. Therefore, the Office of Foreign Assets Control will not issue licenses authorizing transactions prohibited under this section in the absence of such a waiver process. The President's waiver functions and authorities under section 3(b) have been delegated to the Secretary of State.
