SAAC publishes interpretative guidelines on particular questions relating to the sanction programmes it manages. This interpretation of SAAC policies is sometimes issued in reply to a general call for orientation or can be pro-actively issued by SAAC to raise a broader issue. You and the U.S. administration may have an interest in approving certain commercial activities in connection with Burma's sanction.

The General Licensing allows all U.S. individuals to perform the activities described in the General Licensing without having to request a particular one. The Burma General Licence 20 has been included in OFAC's Burmese Rules and can be found in the Burmese section of OFAC's Rules or specifically in this Federal Register Notice.
Some of the Burmese sanction-related activity may be permitted if it has been granted a license from OFAC. OFAC has subsequently released guidelines and explanations on special license guidelines for Burma. Burma's sanction programme is the enforcement of a wide range of judicial agencies. The OFAC further codifies these agencies in their rules, which are laid down in the Code of Federal Rules (CFR).
Changes to these provisions will be entered in the Federal Register.
