The Order was effective at 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight time on July 25, 2011.

On December 30, 2016, the Acting Director of OFAC, in consultation with the Attorney General and the Secretary of State, designated, pursuant to one or more of the criteria set forth in subparagraphs (a)(ii)(A) through (a)(ii)(C) of Section 1 of the Order, 3 individuals and 2 entities whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to the Order.
