Cuban Democracy Act of 1992
The Cuban Democracy Act of 1992 reestablished the embargo
on trade by foreign subsidiaries of U.S. companies with Cuba.
The Act also bars foreign ships that trade with Cuba from
entering U.S. ports for a period of six months.
The Cuban Democracy Act permits the President to lift the
embargo if he determines and reports to Congress that the
government of Cuba has held free and fair elections and has
moved toward establishing a free-market system while committing
itself to constitutional change.
