Title: Hizballah Financial Sanctions Regulations.

Abstract: The Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) added the Hizballah Financial Sanctions Regulations to 31 CFR chapter V, in order to implement the Hizballah International Financing Prevention Act of 2015, Public Law 114-102 (HIFPA). The Regulations require a U.S. financial institution that maintained a correspondent account or a payable-through account for a foreign financial institution for which the maintaining of such an account has been prohibited to file a report with OFAC that provides full details on the closing of each such account within 30 days of the closure of the account. The report must include complete information on all transactions processed or executed in winding down and closing the account. This collection of information is required by OFAC to monitor compliance with regulatory requirements regarding the closure of correspondent accounts and payable-through accounts maintained by a U.S. financial institution for a foreign financial institution when the maintaining of such accounts for a foreign financial institution has been prohibited pursuant to the Regulations.

Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits: U.S. financial institutions operating correspondent or payable-through accounts for foreign financial institutions.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 2.
