Settlement Agreement between the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control and Amazon.com, Inc.

USA : OFAC - Wed, 08/07/2020 - 15:30
The U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) today announced a $134,523 settlement with Amazon.com, Inc. ("Amazon"). Amazon, a Seattle, Washington-based company that provides retail, e-commerce, and digital services to millions of customers worldwide, has agreed to pay $134,523 to settle its potential civil liability for apparent violations of multiple OFAC sanctions programs. As a result of deficiencies related to Amazon's sanctions screening processes, Amazon provided goods and services to persons sanctioned by OFAC; to persons located in the sanctioned region or countries of Crimea, Iran, and Syria; and to individuals located in or employed by the foreign missions of countries sanctioned by OFAC. Amazon also failed to timely report several hundred transactions conducted pursuant to a general license issued by OFAC that included a mandatory reporting requirement, thereby nullifying that authorization with respect to those transactions. The settlement amount reflects OFAC’s determination that Amazon's apparent violations were non-egregious and voluntarily self-disclosed, and further reflects the significant remedial measures implemented by Amazon upon discovery of the apparent violations.​​ For more information, please visit the following web notice.​

Reminder to file the 2020 Annual Report of Blocked Property

USA : OFAC - Wed, 01/07/2020 - 17:00
31 C.F.R. § 501.603 of the Reporting, Procedures and Penalties Regulations (RPPR) requires holders of blocked property to provide the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) with a comprehensive list of all blocked property held as of June 30 of the current year by September 30. Persons that do not hold blocked property as of June 30 do not need to file an Annual Report of Blocked Property (ARBP). Please note that the term blocked property only applies to property that is blocked pursuant to OFAC regulations. Property that was unblocked by an OFAC general or specific license or was previously blocked pursuant to a sanctions program that was terminated on or before June 30, 2020, is not considered blocked property, and should not be reported in the ARBP. Similarly, a restricted account of a person ordinarily resident in Iran is not blocked, and should not be reported to OFAC in the ARBP, unless there is an interest in the account of a person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to an applicable sanctions authority. Persons filing the 2020 ARBP are required to utilize spreadsheet form TD-F 90-22.50. Completed forms should be sent to ofacreport@treasury.gov. Failure to submit a required ARBP by September 30 constitutes a violation of the RPPR. Click here​ to view OFAC’s Guidance on Filing the Annual Report of Blocked Property for additional guidance.
