In particular, this rule adjusts for inflation the maximum amount of the civil monetary penalties that may be assessed under relevant OFAC regulations, including by making conforming changes to OFAC's “Economic Sanctions Enforcement Guidelines.”
The Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control is amending the Syrian Sanctions Regulations to authorize by general license certain activities relating to publishing, not already exempt from regulation, that support the publishing and marketing of manuscripts, books, journals, and newspapers in paper and electronic format.
The Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”) is amending the Syrian Sanctions Regulations (the “Regulations”) and reissuing them in their entirety, in order to implement Executive Order 13399 of April 25, 2006, “Blocking Property of Additional Persons in Connection With the National Emergency With Respect to Syria,” Executive Order 13460 of February 13, 2008, “Blocking Property of Additional Persons in Connection With the National Emergency With Respect to Syria,” Executive Order 13572 of April 29, 2011, “Blocking Property of Certain Persons with Respect to Human Rights Abuses in Syria,” Executive Order 13573 of May 18, 2011, “Blocking Property of Senior Officials of the Government of Syria,” Executive Order 13582 of August 17, 2011, “Blocking Property of the Government of Syria and Prohibiting Certain Transactions with Respect to Syria,” and Executive Order 13606 of April 22, 2012, “Blocking the Property and Suspending Entry Into the United States of Certain Persons with Respect to Grave Human Rights Abuses by the Governments of Iran and Syria via Information Technology.” OFAC is also incorporating into the Regulations several new general licenses, some of which have, until now, appeared only on OFAC's Web site on the Syria sanctions page. Finally, OFAC is updating certain provisions of the Regulations and making other technical and conforming changes.
