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.
