Background

On February 5, 2012, the President issued Executive Order 13599, “Blocking Property of the Government of Iran and Iranian Financial Institutions” (the “Order”). Section 1(a) of the Order blocks, with certain exceptions, all property and interests in property of the Government of Iran, including the Central Bank of Iran, that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of any United States person, including any foreign branch.

Section 7 (d) of the Order defines the term “Government of Iran” to mean the Government of Iran, any political subdivision, agency, or instrumentality thereof, including the Central Bank of Iran, and any person owned or controlled by, or acting for or on behalf of, the Government of Iran.

Section 560.211 of the ITSR implements Section 1(a) of the Order. Section 560.304 defines the term “Government of Iran” to include: “(a) The state and the Government of Iran, as well as any political subdivision, agency, or instrumentality thereof, including the Central Bank of Iran; (b) Any person owned or controlled, directly or indirectly, by the foregoing; and (c) Any person to the extent that such person is, or has been, since the effective date, acting or purporting to act, directly or indirectly, for or on behalf of any of the foregoing; and (d) Any other person determined by the Office of Foreign Assets Control to be included within [(a) through (c)].” Section 560.313 of the ITSR further defines an “entity owned or controlled by the Government of Iran” to include “any corporation, partnership, association, or other entity in which the Government of Iran owns a 50 percent or greater interest or a controlling interest, and any entity which is otherwise controlled by that government.”

On March 14, 2013, the Director of OFAC identified one individual and fourteen entities as meeting the definition of the Government of Iran, and identified eight vessels as the property of the Government of Iran pursuant to the Order and the ITSR.
