Background

In Executive Order 12957 of March 15, 1995 (60 FR 14615, March 17,
1995), President Clinton declared a national emergency with respect to
the actions and policies of the Government of Iran and imposed
sanctions against Iran supplementing those imposed in 1987, invoking
the authority, inter alia, of the International Emergency Economic
Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701-06 (``IEEPA''). The President substantially
supplemented and amended those sanctions in Executive Order 12959 of
May 6, 1995 (60 FR 24757, May 9, 1995). In implementation of these
orders, the Office of Foreign Assets Control (``OFAC'') amended the
Iranian Transactions Regulations in September 1995 (the
``Regulations'') (60 FR 47061, September 11, 1995).
In Executive Order 13059 of August 19, 1997 (62 FR 44531, August
21, 1997), the President clarified the steps taken with respect to the
national emergency declared in Executive Order 12957 and expanded in
Executive Order 12959. In implementation of these orders, OFAC is
amending the Regulations.
Section 560.201 continues the prohibition on the importation into
the United States of goods or services of Iranian origin but indicates
that this includes goods or services owned or controlled by the
Government of Iran. Section 560.201 also conforms the exemption for
information and informational materials for import purposes to that
applicable under IEEPA for all other purposes.
Section 560.204 is revised to provide that any exportation,
reexportation, sale or supply of goods to Iran or the Government of
Iran from the United States, or by a U.S. person wherever located, is
prohibited. This includes any exportation, reexportation, sale or
supply of goods, services or technology from the United States or by a
U.S. person in a third country undertaken with knowledge or reason to
know that such goods, services or technology are intended specifically
for supply, transshipment or reexportation, directly or indirectly, to
Iran or the Government of Iran. Similarly, Sec. 560.204 prohibits any
exportation, reexportation, sale or supply of goods, services or
technology

[[Page 20169]]

intended specifically for use in the production of, for commingling
with, or for incorporation into goods, technology or services to be
supplied, transshipped or reexported exclusively or predominantly to
Iran or the Government of Iran.
Section 560.205 is amended to clarify that a person other than a
U.S. person is prohibited from knowingly reexporting U.S.-origin goods,
technology and services to Iran or the Government of Iran if those
goods, services or technology are subject to written license
application requirements by any U.S. Government agency imposed
independently of part 560, unless such U.S.-origin items have been
substantially transformed into a foreign-made product or the U.S.-
origin content meets the de minimis standard in that section. U.S.
persons remain subject to the prohibitions in Sec. 560.204, regardless
of the origin or type of item or the country from which it is shipped.
Section 560.206 amends the rules relating to dealings in goods or
services of Iranian origin or owned or controlled by the Government in
Iran and concerning dealings in goods, technology or services for
exportation, reexportation, sale or supply to Iran or the Government of
Iran. Section 560.208 is amended to provide that the approval,
facilitation, financing or guarantee by a U.S. person of any Iran-
related transaction by a foreign person is not permitted if the
transaction by the foreign person would be prohibited by this part if
performed by a U.S. person or within the United States. In addition,
Secs. 560.210(c) and (d) are amended to clarify rules relating to
informational materials and travel.
The effective dates of the prohibitions in this part are set out in
Sec. 560.301. Section 560.306 is revised to clarify the definitions of
the terms goods of Iranian origin and goods or services owned or
controlled by the Government of Iran. The definition of United States
depositary institution in Sec. 560.319 is revised to remove reference
to certain activities of banks that might draw into the definition non-
banking businesses that are not subject to federal or state regulation
as banks. Certain other revisions to existing definitions are made to
subpart C.
In subpart D, certain existing interpretive provisions are revised
and new interpretive sections are added. Section 560.403 is added to
make clear that the prohibitions in Secs. 560.204, 560.206 and 560.208
apply to export, reexport or supply transactions which require a
transshipment or transit of goods or technology through Iran to third
countries. Section 560.406 is revised to indicate that the prohibition
on importation in Sec. 560.201 includes, among other things,
importation into the United States, for transshipment or transit, of
goods owned or controlled by the Government of Iran destined for third
countries, and the prohibition on exportation in Sec. 560.204 includes,
among other things, the exportation from the United States, for
transshipment or transit, of goods intended or destined for the
Government of Iran, including entities owned or controlled by the
Government of Iran. Section 560.410 is revised to clarify the term
exportation or supply of services. Section 560.412 on extensions of
credit to Iran is amended to add a reference to standby letters of
credit. Section 560.414, which relates to reexportation of U.S.-origin
goods or technology, is amended to provide interpretation with respect
to Sec. 560.205.
Section 560.416 is added to provide examples of prohibited
brokering services. Section 560.417 on facilitation of transactions is
added to replace Sec. 560.516(d), which is removed. Section 560.418 is
added to deal with the release of technology to Iran or the Government
of Iran that may violate this part, and transfers of technology to
foreign nationals, including Iranian nationals, that may implicate
rules administered by the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department
of Commerce, or other agencies of the U.S. Government. Section 560.419
is added to deal with issues related to the U.S. employment of persons
normally located in Iran. Section 560.420 is added to interpret the de
minimis content rules contained in Sec. 560.205, which apply to
reexportations by foreign persons.
In subpart E, Sec. 560.501(d) is added to explain that specific
licenses issued pursuant to Executive Orders 12613, 12957 or 12959
continue in effect in accordance with their terms except to the extent
revoked, amended, or modified by the Office of Foreign Assets Control.
Section 560.501(e) provides that certain exports, reexports or
transfers of goods, technology, or services, or the direct products of
technology, which are not prohibited by this part and which do not
require authorization by OFAC, may nonetheless require authorization by
the U.S. Department of Commerce, the U.S. Department of State or other
agencies of the U.S. Government. Section 560.505 is amended to deal
with activities taken in connection with certain visa categories.
Section 560.509 is amended to clarify that the general license
relating to protection of patents, trademarks and copyrights extends to
the importation of Iranian-origin services, payment for such services,
and payment to persons in Iran in connection with such intellectual
property protection.
Section 560.511 is added to create an ``insubstantial content''
exception to the prohibitions in Sec. 560.204. As noted, Sec. 560.204
prohibits the knowing exportation, reexportation, sale or supply of
goods, services or technology from the United States, or by U.S.
persons wherever located, to third countries for incorporation or
substantial transformation into items destined for Iran or the
Government of Iran. Section 560.511 creates an exception to this rule,
authorizing such ``knowing'' supply by U.S. persons or from the United
States under certain circumstances: Such ``knowing'' supply is
authorized under Sec. 560.511 when (1) the items being exported,
reexported or supplied for substantial transformation or incorporation
abroad do not require authorization for exportation or reexportation by
another agency of the U.S. Government; (2) the U.S.-origin items do not
exceed the content levels specified in Sec. 560.511(a)(2); (3) the
foreign-made end product is not destined to end uses or end users
prohibited under regulations administered by other U.S. Government
agencies (Sec. 560.511(d)); and (4) the foreign-made end product is not
intended for use in the Iranian petroleum or petrochemical industry
(Sec. 560.511(e)). The authorization in Sec. 560.511(a) is not
available if the foreign-made end product is of a type which other U.S.
Government agencies make ineligible for de minimis U.S.-origin content.
More generally, export control rules administered by other agencies of
the U.S. Government may prohibit an exportation or supply otherwise
authorized by Sec. 560.511.
A general license is added in Sec. 560.529 to authorize the
provision of goods or services in the United States to a non-Iranian
carrier transporting passengers or goods to or from Iran if they are
bunkers or bunkering services, are supplied in the course of emergency
repairs, or are supplied under circumstances which could not be
anticipated prior to the carrier's departure for the United States.
Technical changes or new text also appear at the following
sections, among others: Secs. 560.207, 560.308, 560.315, 560.412,
560.506, 560.515, 560.516, and 560.523. The prior Sec. 560.411
concerning offshore transactions in Iranian-origin goods and services
has been removed and reserved because its content, as modified to
accord with Executive Order 13059, is covered in Sec. 560.206.

[[Page 20170]]

Section 560.318 is removed and reserved.
An appendix is added to provide the names of financial institutions
deemed by OFAC to be entities owned or controlled by the Government of
Iran. This list, with minor modifications, duplicates the list
promulgated as an annex to General License No. 3 on June 6, 1995 (see
60 FR 40883, August 10, 1995).
Because the Regulations involve a foreign affairs function,
Executive Order 12866 and the provisions of the Administrative
Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) requiring notice of proposed rulemaking,
opportunity for public participation, and delay in effective date, are
inapplicable. Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required for
this rule, the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612) does not
apply.

(c) Reexportation by United States persons or from the United

(c) The prohibitions contained in Secs. 560.204, 560.207 and
560.209 apply to, among other things, credits or loans in any currency.

20. Section 560.414 is revised to read as follows:

Sec. 560.414 Reexportation of certain U.S.-origin goods exported prior
to May 7, 1995.

The prohibitions on reexportation in Sec. 560.205 do not apply to
United States-origin goods or technology that were exported from the
United States prior to 12:01 a.m., Eastern Daylight Time, May 7, 1995,
if:
(a) Such goods or technology were not the property of a United
States person as of 12:01 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time, May 7, 1995; and
(b) The reexportation of the U.S.-origin goods or technology to
Iran or the Government of Iran was not subject to reexport (as opposed
to export) license application requirements under U.S. regulations in
effect prior to May 6, 1995.
Notes to Sec. 560.414.
1. The exclusion in this section applies, among other things, to
goods that were as of May 6, 1995, classified under the U.S.
Department of Commerce's Export Administration Regulations (15 CFR
parts 730-774) as ECCNs 2A994; 3A993; 5A992; 5A995; 6A990; 6A994;
7A994; 8A992; 8A994; 9A990; 9A992; and 9A994, that were exported
from the United States prior to 12:01 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time,
May 7, 1995, and were not the property of a United States person as
of 12:01 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time, May 7, 1995. As of April 26,
1999, items covered by this note are classified under ECCNs 2A994;
3A992.a; 5A991.f; 5A992; 6A991; 6A998; 7A994; 8A992.d, .e, .f and
.g; 9A990.a and .b; and 9A991.d and .e.
2. A reexportation of U.S.-origin goods or technology which
meets the conditions of paragraph (a) of this section, or which is
not within the scope of Sec. 560.205, nevertheless may require
specific authorization by other agencies of the U.S. Government for
reexportation to Iran or the Government of Iran. For example, items
which meet the conditions of paragraph (a) may nevertheless require
an export license under the Enhanced Proliferation Control
Initiative provisions of the Export Administration Regulations (15
CFR part 744).

21. Section 560.416 is added to subpart D to read as follows:

Sec. 560.416. Brokering services.

(a) For purposes of the prohibitions in Secs. 560.201, 560.204,
560.205, 560.206 and 560.208, the term services includes performing a
brokering function.
(b) Examples. A person within the United States, or a United States
person, wherever located, may not:
(1) Act as broker for the provision of goods, services or

Iran;
(2) Act as broker for the purchase or swap of crude oil of Iranian
origin or owned or controlled by the Government of Iran;
(3) Act as broker for the provision of financing, a financial
guarantee or an extension of credit by any person to Iran or the

enable that person to construct or operate a facility in Iran or owned
or controlled by the Government of Iran; or
(5) Act as a broker for the provision of financing, a financial
guarantee, or an extension of credit to any person specifically to
enable that person to provide goods, services, or technology intended
for Iran or the Government of Iran.

22. Section 560.417 is added to subpart D to read as follows:

Sec. 560.417 Facilitation; change of policies and procedures; referral
of business opportunities offshore.

With respect to Sec. 560.208, a prohibited facilitation or approval
of a transaction by a foreign person occurs, among other instances,
when a United States person:
(a) Alters its operating policies or procedures, or those of a
foreign affiliate, to permit a foreign affiliate to accept or perform a
specific contract, engagement or transaction involving Iran or the
Government of Iran without the approval of the United States person,
where such transaction previously required approval by the United
States person and such transaction by the foreign affiliate would be
prohibited by this part if

[[Page 20173]]

performed directly by a United States person or from the United States;
(b) Refers to a foreign person purchase orders, requests for bids,
or similar business opportunities involving Iran or the Government of
Iran to which the United States person could not directly respond as a
result of the prohibitions contained in this part; or
(c) Changes the operating policies and procedures of a particular
affiliate with the specific purpose of facilitating transactions that
would be prohibited by this part if performed by a United States person
or from the United States.

23. Section 560.418 is added to subpart D to read as follows:

Sec. 560.418 Release of technology or software in the United States or
a third country.

The release of technology or software in the United States, or by a
United States person wherever located, to any person violates the
prohibitions of this part if made with knowledge or reason to know the
technology is intended for Iran or the Government of Iran, unless that
technology or software meets the definition of information and
informational materials in Sec. 560.315. See Sec. 560.511.
Notes to Sec. 560.418.
1. The U.S. Department of Commerce's Bureau of Export
Administration requires a license for the release in the United
States (or in a third country) to a foreign national of technology
if both of the following conditions are met:
(a) That technology would require a license for exportation (or
reexportation) to the home country of the foreign national; and
(b) The foreign national is not a citizen or permanent resident
of the United States (or of the third country) or is not a protected
individual under the Immigration and Naturalization Act (8 U.S.C.
Sec. 1324(b)(a)(3)). See 15 CFR 734.2(b)(2)(ii) and 734.2(b)(5).
2. The transfer to a foreign national of technology subject to
regulations administered by the U.S. Department of State or other
agencies of the U.S. Government may require authorization by those
agencies.

24. Section 560.419 is added to subpart D to read as follows:

Sec. 560.419 U.S. employment of persons normally located in Iran.

The prohibitions in Sec. 560.201 make it unlawful to hire an
Iranian national normally located in Iran to come to the United States
solely or for the principal purpose of engaging in employment on behalf
of an entity in Iran or as the employee of a U.S. person, unless that
employment is authorized pursuant to a visa issued by the U.S. State
Department or by Sec. 560.505. See also Sec. 560.418 with respect to
the release of technology and software.

25. Section 560.420 is added to subpart D to read as follows:

Sec. 560.420 Reexportation by non-U.S. persons of certain foreign-made
products containing U.S.-origin goods or technology.

For purposes of satisfying the de minimis content rule in
Sec. 560.205(b)(2):
(a) U.S.-origin goods (excluding software) falling within the
definition in Sec. 560.205 must comprise less than 10 percent of the
foreign-made good (excluding software);
(b) U.S.-origin software falling within the definition in
Sec. 560.205 must comprise less than 10 percent of the foreign-made
software;
(c) U.S.-origin technology falling within the definition in
Sec. 560.205 must comprise less than 10 percent of the foreign-made
technology; and,
(d) In cases involving a complex product made of a combination of
U.S.-origin goods (including software) and technology falling within
the definition in Sec. 560.205, the aggregate value of all such U.S.-
origin goods (including software) and such technology contained in the
foreign-made product must be less than 10 percent of the total value of
the foreign-made product.
Notes to Sec. 560.420.
1. Notwithstanding the exceptions contained in
Sec. 560.205(b)(1) and (b)(2) and this section, a reexportation to
Iran or the Government of Iran of U.S.-origin items falling within
the definition in Sec. 560.205 is prohibited if those U.S.-origin
goods (including software) or that technology have been
substantially transformed or incorporated into a foreign-made end
product which is destined to end uses or end users prohibited under
regulations administered by other U.S. Government agencies. See,
e.g., the Export Administration Regulations (31 CFR 736.2(b)(5),
744.2, 744.3, 744.4, 744.7, and 744.10); International Traffic in
Arms Regulations (22 CFR 123.9).
2. A reexportation not prohibited by Sec. 560.205 may
nevertheless require authorization by the U.S. Department of
Commerce, the U.S. Department of State or other agencies of the U.S.
Government.
3. The provisions of Sec. 560.205 and this section apply only to
persons other than United States persons.

Subpart E--Licenses, Authorizations and Statements of Licensing
Policy

26. Section 560.501 is amended by adding paragraphs (d) and (e) to
read as follows:

Sec. 560.501 Effect of license or authorization.

* * * * *

Time, August 20, 1997, continue in effect in accordance with their
terms except to the extent specifically revoked, amended, or modified
by the Office of Foreign Assets Control.
(e) Nothing contained in this part shall be construed to supersede
the requirements established under any other provision of law or to
relieve a person from any requirement to obtain a license or other
authorization from another department or agency of the U.S. Government
in compliance with applicable laws and regulations subject to the
jurisdiction of that department or agency. For example, exports of
goods, services, or technical data which are not prohibited by this
part or which do not require a license by the Office of Foreign Assets
Control, nevertheless may require authorization by the U.S. Department
of Commerce, the U.S. Department of State or other agencies of the U.S.
Government. See also Sec. 560.701(d).

27. Section 560.505 is revised to read as follows:

Sec. 560.505 Importation of certain Iranian-origin services authorized; activities related to certain visa categories authorized. (a) The importation of Iranian-origin services into the United States or other dealing in such services is authorized where such services are performed in the United States by an Iranian citizen or national for the purpose of, or which directly relate to, participating in a public conference, performance, exhibition or similar event, and such services are consistent with that purpose. (b) Persons otherwise qualified for a non-immigrant visa under categories A-3 and G-5 (attendants, servants and personal employees of aliens in the United States on diplomatic status), D (crewmen), F (students), I (information media representatives), J (exchange visitors), M (non-academic students), O and P (aliens with extraordinary ability, athletes, artists and entertainers), Q (international cultural exchange visitors), R (religious workers), or S (witnesses) are authorized to carry out in the United States those activities for which such a visa has been granted by the U.S. State Department. (c) Persons otherwise qualified for a visa under categories E-2 (treaty investor), H-1b (temporary worker), or L (intra-company transferee) and all immigrant visa categories are authorized to carry out in the United States those activities for which such a visa has been granted by the U.S. State Department, provided that the persons are not coming to the United States to work as an agent, employee or contractor of the Government of Iran or a business entity or other organization in Iran.

[[Page 20174]]

28. Section 560.506 is revised to read as follows:

Sec. 560.506 Importation and exportation of certain gifts authorized.

The importation into the United States of Iranian-origin goods from
Iran or a third country, and the exportation from the United States to
Iran of goods, are authorized for goods sent as gifts to persons
provided that the value of the gift is not more than $100; the goods
are of a type and in quantities normally given as gifts between
individuals; and the goods are not controlled for chemical and
biological weapons (CB), missile technology (MT), national security
(NS), or nuclear proliferation (NP). See Commerce Control List, Export
Administration Regulations (15 CFR part 774).

29. Section 560.509 is amended by revising paragraph (a)(1) as
follows:

Sec. 560.509 Certain transactions related to patents, trademarks and
copyrights authorized.

(a) * * *

patent, trademark, copyright or other form of intellectual property
protection, including importation of or dealing in Iranian-origin
services, payment for such services, and payment to persons in Iran
directly connected to such intellectual property protection;
* * * * *

30. Section 560.511 is added to read as follows:

Sec. 560.511 Exportation or supply of insubstantial United States
content for use in foreign-made products or technology.

(a) Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this section and
notwithstanding the prohibitions in Sec. 560.204, the exportation or
supply of goods or technology from the United States, or by a United
States person wherever located, for substantial transformation or
incorporation into a foreign-made end product in a country other than
the United States or Iran, intended specifically or predominantly for
Iran or the Government of Iran, is permitted under this part where the
exporter has ascertained that all of the following are the case:
(1) The U.S.-origin goods or technology being exported for
substantial transformation or incorporation abroad were not subject to
export license application requirements under any United States
regulations in effect on May 6, 1995, or were not thereafter made
subject to such regulations imposed independently of this part;
(2) With respect to the foreign-made end product:
(i) U.S.-origin goods (excluding software) comprise less than 10
percent of the foreign-made good (excluding software);
(ii) U.S.-origin software comprises less than 10 percent of the
foreign-made software;
(iii) U.S.-origin technology comprises less than 10 percent of the
foreign-made technology; and
(iv) In cases involving a complex product made of a combination of
goods (including software) and technology, the aggregate value of all
U.S.-origin goods (including software) and technology contained in the
foreign-made end product is less than 10 percent of the total value of
the foreign-made product;
(3) The foreign-made end product is not destined to end uses or end
users prohibited under regulations administered by other U.S.
Government agencies. See, e.g., the Export Administration Regulations
(31 CFR 736.2(b)(5), 744.2, 744.3, 744.4, 744.7, and 744.10);
International Traffic in Arms Regulations (22 CFR 123.9);
(4) The foreign-made end product is not intended for use in the
Iranian petroleum or petrochemical industry. For this purpose, products
intended for use in the Iranian petroleum or petrochemical industry
include not only products uniquely suited for use in those industries,
such as oilfield services equipment, but also goods and technology for
use in products, such as computers, office equipment, construction
equipment, or building materials, which are suitable for use in other
industries but which are intended specifically for use in the petroleum
or petrochemical industries.
(b) The authorization contained in this section is not available if
the foreign-made end product is of a type which other U.S. Government
agencies make ineligible for de minimis U.S.-origin content. See, e.g.,
the Export Administration Regulations (15 CFR 734.4(a) and (b));
International Traffic in Arms Regulations (22 CFR 123.9).
Note to Sec. 560.511. An exportation authorized by this section
may nevertheless require authorization by the U.S. Department of
Commerce, the U.S. Department of State or other agencies of the U.S.
Government.

31. Paragraph (d) of Sec. 560.515 removed, and paragraph (a) is
revised to read as follows:

Sec. 560.515 30-day delayed effective date for pre-May 7, 1995 trade

existing trade contract), including the exportation of goods, services
(including financial services), or technology from the United States
that was authorized pursuant to Federal regulations in force
immediately prior to May 6, 1995, or performance under a pre-existing
trade contract for transactions in Iranian-origin or Government of
Iran-owned or controlled goods or services that do not involve
importation into the United States, are authorized without specific
licensing by the Office of Foreign Assets Control if the conditions in
paragraph (a)(1) or (a)(2) of this section are met:
(1) If the pre-existing trade contract is for an exportation of
goods or technology from the United States that was authorized pursuant
to Federal regulations in force immediately prior to May 6, 1995, the
goods or technology must be exported from the United States prior to
12:01 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time, June 6, 1995, and all other activity
by U.S. persons that is necessary and incidental to the performance of
the pre-existing trade contract (other than payment under a financing
contract) must be completed prior to 12:01 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time,
August 6, 1995; or
(2) All obligations under a pre-existing trade contract (other than
payment under a financing contract) must be fully completed prior to
12:01 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time, June 6, 1995, if the pre-existing
trade contract is for one of the following:

or owned or controlled by the Government of Iran other than
transactions relating to importation into the United States of such

32. Section 560.516 is amended by revising paragraphs (a)(3),
(a)(4), and (b) to read as follows:

Sec. 560.516 Payment and United States dollar clearing transactions
involving Iran.

(a) * * *

prohibited by this part, such as a non-commercial remittance to or from

related commercial transfer not prohibited by this part (see, e.g.,
Sec. 560.515(b)); or a third-country transaction not prohibited by this
part; or
(4) The transfer arises from an underlying transaction that is
exempted from regulation pursuant to Sec. 203(b) of the International
Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1702(b)), such as an
exportation to Iran or importation from Iran of information and
informational materials, a travel-related remittance, or payment for
the shipment of a donation of articles to relieve human suffering.
(b) Before a United States depository institution initiates a
payment on behalf of any customer, or credits a transfer to the account
on its books of the ultimate beneficiary, the United States depository
institution must determine that the underlying transaction is not
prohibited by this part.

(c) Supplied or performed under circumstances which could not be
anticipated prior to the carrier's departure for the United States.

Know Their Job Well And Perform It Flawlessly

“Don't do the mistake we did and try to save few bucks going with nonprofessionals and sole practitioners! It will end up not only costing you much more in the long run, but also putting your status in jeopardy which can have a priceless impact. It is one of the most important steps in your life.”
