In 2009 the bank was partially privatised, with the Iranian state remaining as a minority shareholder.
In January 2014, the European General Court in Luxembourg ruled to annul the European Union sanctions in place since 2012 against the bank on grounds of supporting the Iranian nuclear program, as there was inadequete evidences supporting the claim. Sanctions will remain in place giving time for the EU to appeal the decision, or to re-impose sanctions on different legal grounds.
Tejarat Bank has six branches in other countries.
