This class deviation implements the Department of State Public Notice: 11281, Rescission of Determination Regarding Sudan, announcing removal of Sudan from the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism, effective December 14, 2020. This action was based upon the Presidential Report of October 26, 2020, to Congress, indicating the Administration’s intent to rescind the designation of Sudan as a state sponsor of terrorism, including the certification that Sudan has not provided any support for international terrorism during the previous six months, and that Sudan has provided assurance that it will not support acts of international terrorism in the future.

This class deviation remains in effect until it is incorporated in the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement, or is otherwise rescinded.
