In October 2016, the Cuban Asset Control Regulations (CACR) were amended to create an exception to this ‘180-day rule’ for foreign vessels. Under the terms of the exception, a foreign vessel is exempt from the 180 day rule if it carries to Cuba from a third country, goods that are subject to the US Export Administration Regulations (classified as EAR99).
