Educational Testing Service (ETS) announced last week that resumed registrations in Iran for its TOEFL® and GRE® tests. The brief suspension was the indirect result of tighter U.N.

ETS has permission from the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury to conduct its testing business in Iran.
