(a) The purchase of shares in a third-country company that is engaged in the economic development of resources located in Burma is prohibited by § 537.204 where the company's profits are predominantly derived from the company's economic development of resources located in Burma. The purchase of such shares, however, is authorized by general license pursuant to § 537.530, provided that all conditions of that general license are satisfied.
(b) If a U.S. person holds shares in an entity which subsequently engages predominantly in the economic development of resources located in Burma or subsequently derives its income exclusively or predominantly from such economic development, the U.S. person is not required to relinquish its shares. Owning such shares, and purchasing additional shares is authorized by general license pursuant to § 537.530, provided that all conditions of that general license are satisfied.

The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 31 CFR Part 537 after this date.
The Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is issuing this interim final rule to amend its regulations for the relevant sanctions programs it administers to implement the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 1990, as amended by the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996 and the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015. In particular, this rule adjusts for inflation the maximum amount of the civil monetary penalties that may be assessed under relevant OFAC regulations, including by making conforming changes to OFAC's “Economic Sanctions Enforcement Guidelines.”
The Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is amending the Burmese Sanctions Regulations to add a general license authorizing certain transactions related to U.S. persons residing in Burma. OFAC is also incorporating a general license authorizing certain transactions incident to exports to and from Burma that has, until now, appeared only on OFAC's Web site on the Burma sanctions page, and expanding this authorization to allow certain transactions incident to the movement of goods within Burma that otherwise would be prohibited. Finally, OFAC is expanding and updating another existing authorization allowing most transactions involving certain blocked financial institutions.
The Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is amending and reissuing in their entirety the Burmese Sanctions Regulations to implement Executive Order 13448 of October 18, 2007, “Blocking Property and Prohibiting Certain Transactions Related to Burma,” Executive Order 13464 of April 30, 2008, “Blocking Property and Prohibiting Certain Transactions Related to Burma,” Executive Order 13619 of July 11, 2012, “Blocking Property of Persons Threatening the Peace, Security, or Stability of Burma,” and Executive Order 13651 of August 6, 2013, “Prohibiting Certain Imports of Burmese Jadeite and Rubies.”
