As part of a January 16, 2015 rule that amended the EAR to reflect changes in the U.S. Government's Cuba policy, License Exception Consumer Communications Devices (CCD) was amended to authorize commercial sales, in addition to donations, of eligible items. Additionally, technical revisions were made in that rule to more precisely track the current technical specifications for some of the specified items. The Sudan rule provides that certain items, namely, Global Positioning System receivers and similar satellite receivers, are available under CCD for export and reexport to Sudan.
