US Trade Sanction blocking RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I notice in the new application blocking capabilities in the store you can block your app being available for certain countries. I am particularly keen on blocking US Trade Sanction countries like Iran, Cuba etc... 

    As these countries are not present in the blocking capabilities, are these countries already blocked for Office 365 / App store access at a higher level? Or do we need to specifically code in geo-blocking to our app?

    Is there some form of official policy statement you can point me at?

  • Hi Alex,

    Thanks for the question. Yes, app distribution is already blocked to US Trade Sanction countries. It is not necessary for you to do additional geo-blocking to your app.

    Here’s the link to the Microsoft Exporting FAQ.
