Comprehensive Anti-Apartheid Act
The Comprehensive Anti-Apartheid Act of 1986 was a law created by the United States Congress. The law would make sanctions against South Africa and stated five conditions for lifting the sanctions that would end the system of apartheid. Most of the sanctions were repealed in July 1991 after South Africa took steps towards meeting the conditions of the act, with the very few last ones repealed in November 1993.
