10 OFAC Overview OFAC is an office within the U.S. Treasury Department Administers and enforces two types of economic sanctions programs: Comprehensive Sanctions, which are country-wide or territory-wide sanctions ( embargoes ) List-Based Sanctions, which target particular individuals and entities Separate set of regulations for each sanctions program Rules vary widely across different OFAC programs 10

11 Scope of OFAC Jurisdiction: U.S. Persons OFAC regulations apply to U.S. persons U.S. citizens and permanent residents (wherever located) Anyone physically present in the United States (regardless of nationality) Companies legally organized under U.S. law and their employees (wherever located) Foreign branches of U.S. entities (i.e., entities abroad that are not separately incorporated) Cuba and Iran: Foreign entities that are owned or controlled by U.S. entities 11

12 Elements of an Embargo No direct U.S. export or import trade in goods or services with target country or area With limited exceptions, no indirect third-country export or import trade that involves: Any U.S. person in any way With narrow exceptions, exports or reexports of any product or technology of U.S. origin No investment by U.S. persons in target country / area No dealings by U.S. persons in property of target country / area (e.g., Iranian or Sudanese crude) Significantly, U.S. persons cannot facilitate, approve, support, etc., most activities by third parties that the U.S. person could not undertake directly 12

13 List-Based Sanctions: OFAC s SDN List OFAC maintains a long list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons ( SDN List ) SDN List has over 7,000 entries, and includes individuals, companies, banks, hotels, vessels, and others that are effectively off-limits to U.S. persons Property and property interests of certain SDNs must be blocked (i.e., frozen) SDN List is updated frequently (new names are added and some names are removed) OFAC takes the position that any party that is owned 50% or more by one or more SDNs is itself an SDN (even if not on the SDN List): OFAC makes available an SDN Search tool with fuzzy logic : 13 Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Al Shabaab (Somalia)

14 OFAC Authorization Transactions by or involving U.S. persons related to a sanctioned country, area, or person require some form of OFAC authorization: OFAC Exception: Certain transactions are carved out of the regulations (e.g., informational materials) General License : an OFAC permission found in the OFAC regulations that can be relied upon by any U.S. person without notifying OFAC, provided the general license s restrictions are observed Specific License : a permission applied for in writing from OFAC, issued by OFAC, which generally can only be relied upon by the U.S. person that applied for the specific license 14

15 Penalties Penalties per OFAC or BIS violation: Criminal penalties: Up to $1 million and/or up to 20 years imprisonment Civil fines: $284,582 or twice the value of the transaction, whichever is higher Multiple violations often charged even for single transactions Damage to an organization s reputation can be significant: Press reports Agency releases SEC disclosure pressure 15

16 Special Focus: Cuba, Iran, Russia / Ukraine 16

17 Cuba 17

18 Cuba: Easing Sanctions, Embargo Remains President Obama announced easing of embargo in December 2014 President cannot on his own lift the embargo Agencies issue amended regulations Congress likely needed to lift embargo Trading with the Enemy Act Foreign Assistance Act Cuban Democracy Act Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity Act (a.k.a., Helms-Burton ) Trade Sanctions Reform and Export Enhancement Act Election casts doubt on future easing 18

19 Cuba: Export Opportunities Commercial export opportunities Provided conditions are met, export license exemptions available to export certain types of items to the Cuban private sector equipment, tools, supplies, and instruments 200 private-sector activities under Cuban law Favorable export licensing policy for items necessary for environmental protection, including items related to energy efficiency (e.g., electric cars) Case-by-case export licensing available for items to meet the needs of the Cuban people Including items for wholesale and retail distribution for domestic consumption by the Cuban people Cuban Government can receive and distribute items Eligible U.S. persons and firms may establish and maintain a physical presence in Cuba 19

20 Cuba: Export Opportunities and Challenges Practical hurdles to export activity Cuban import policies Market in Cuba 20

21 Cuba: Contingent Contracts New authorization for contingent contracts OFAC has authorized U.S. persons to negotiate and enter into contracts for transactions prohibited by the regulations Performance must be expressly contingent on receiving OFAC authorization (and any other necessary federal authorization), or authorization no longer being required Includes executory contracts, agreements in principle, binding memoranda of understanding, or any other similar agreement 21

23 Iran 23

24 Iran: Overview of U.S. Sanctions Program Background on Iran Sanctions Program Introduction of secondary sanctions Apply to non-u.s. persons, even those with no connections to the United States Most activities relating to Iran s energy sector as well as purchases of petroleum-related products Significant transactions involving various sectors of the Iranian economy, including its automotive sector Sanctions target the sale, supply, or transfer to Iran of significant goods and services connected to the automotive sector in Iran Automotive Sector of Iran: Manufacturing or assembling in Iran of light and heavy vehicles including passenger cars, trucks, buses, minibuses, pick-up trucks, and motorcycles and original equipment manufacturing and after-market parts manufacturing relating to such vehicles Penalties include denial of certain U.S. benefits 24

25 Iran: Nuclear Agreement Joint Plan of Action ( JPOA ) in November 2013 Limited sanctions relief for non-u.s. firms and individuals provided during period of negotiations Included suspension of secondary sanctions relating to Iran s automotive industry Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action ( JCPOA ) in January 2016 Prohibitions affecting U.S. persons generally remain Changes mainly affect non-u.s. firms and individuals Limited changes affecting U.S. persons 25

26 Iran: General License H Entities outside the U.S. that are owned or controlled by a U.S. person can trade with Iran pursuant to General License H Effectively turns back the clock to pre-fall 2012 Conditions and limitations, including: No U.S. person support, approval, facilitation, or referral (except certain policy changes and reliance on IT infrastructure) No sourcing of goods from the U.S. or U.S. persons if order placed with knowledge or reason to know items are intended specifically or predominantly to Iran No use of U.S. banks or U.S. dollars No dealings with SDNs 26

27 Russia / Ukraine 27

28 Russia-Related Sanctions Beginning in March 2014, the United States imposed sanctions on certain designated parties in Russia and Ukraine So far, more than 200 individuals and entities have been added to the SDN List Russian and Ukrainian political figures and rebel leaders Russian business figures ( oligarchs ) Russian businesses e.g., banks, military manufacturers, natural resource companies In December 2014, OFAC imposed a unique regional embargo on the Crimea region of Ukraine 28

29 OFAC Advisory on Crimea (July 30, 2015) OFAC issues Crimea Sanctions Advisory OFAC has learned of evasive practices, such as the omission or obfuscation of references to Crimea and locations within Crimea in documentation underlying transactions OFAC is aware that certain parties have repeatedly omitted originator or beneficiary address information from SWIFT messages involving parties in Crimea U.S. persons urged to be cautious when processing payment instructions lacking complete address information when such transactions involve an individual or entity that has previously omitted partial or complete address information of Crimean individuals or entities In trade transactions, certain parties list Russia rather than Ukraine for parties in Crimea, and OFAC notes to be mindful of distribution agreements covering Russia Ensure that transaction monitoring systems include major cities and ports in Crimea, not just searches for Crimea Request additional information from parties that previously have attempted to violate U.S. sanctions on Crimea Communicate sanctions obligations clearly to international parties 29

30 Russia-Related Sanctions In 2014, OFAC created a Sectoral Sanctions Identifications List ( SSI List ), adding to it certain Russian banks, energy firms, and defense firms SSI-Listed entitles are not SDNs most transactions are permitted U.S. persons cannot transact in, provide financing for, or deal in: New debt of longer than 30 days maturity or new equity for designated banks and defense firms New debt of longer than 90 days maturity for designated energy firms Certain payment terms could create problems 30
