DATES: The determination by the Director of OFAC with respect to these 21 persons is effective on August 3, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Electronic and Facsimile Availability This document and additional information concerning OFAC are available from OFAC’s Web site (http://www.treas.gov/ofac). Certain general information pertaining to OFAC’s sanctions programs also is available via facsimile through a 24hour fax-on-demand service, tel.: 202/ 622–0077. Background The Iranian Transactions Regulations, 31 CFR part 560 (the ‘‘ITR’’), implement a series of Executive orders that began with Executive Order 12613, which was issued on October 29, 1987, pursuant to authorities including the International Security and Development Cooperation Act of 1985 (22 U.S.C. 2349aa–9). In that Order, after finding, inter alia, that the Government of Iran was actively supporting terrorism as an instrument of state policy, the President prohibited the importation of Iranian-origin goods and services. Subsequently, in Executive Order 12957, issued on March 15, 1995, under the authority of, inter alia, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701– 1706) (‘‘IEEPA’’), the President declared a national emergency with respect to the actions and policies of the Government of Iran, including its support for international terrorism, its efforts to PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 undermine the Middle East peace process, and its efforts to acquire weapons of mass destruction and the means to deliver them. To deal with that threat, Executive Order 12957 imposed prohibitions on certain transactions with respect to the development of Iranian petroleum resources. On May 6, 1995, to further respond to this threat, the President issued Executive Order 12959, which imposed comprehensive trade and financial sanctions on Iran. Finally, on August 19, 1997, the President issued Executive Order 13059 consolidating and clarifying the previous orders. The ITR implement these Executive orders and prohibit various transactions, including, among others, transactions with the Government of Iran, a term defined in section 560.304. That definition includes: (a) The state and the Government of Iran, as well as any political subdivision, agency, or instrumentality thereof; (b) Any entity owned or controlled directly or indirectly by the foregoing; and (c) Any person to the extent that such person is, or has been, or to the extent that there is reasonable cause to believe that such person is, or has been, * * * acting or purporting to act directly or indirectly on behalf of any of the foregoing * * *. The phrase entity owned or controlled by the Government of Iran is itself defined in section 560.313 of the ITR. OFAC today is publishing the names of 21 persons it has determined to be the Government of Iran. The names of these persons will be added to Appendix A to Part 560 at a later date. It is important to note that Appendix A to Part 560 is not a comprehensive list of persons falling within the definition of Government of Iran. Even if a person is not listed in Appendix A to Part 560 or has not otherwise been specifically determined by OFAC to be the Government of Iran, if the person satisfies the definition of the term Government of Iran in the ITR, U.S. persons and others engaging in transactions subject to the ITR are prohibited from engaging in transactions with that person, regardless of its location, to the same extent they are prohibited from engaging in transactions with the persons listed in Appendix A to Part 560 or that have otherwise been specifically determined by OFAC to be the Government of Iran. U.S. persons and others engaging in transactions subject to the ITR also are prohibited from engaging in most transactions with any person located in Iran, even if that person does not come within the E:\FR\FM\11AUR1.SGM 11AUR1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 154 / Wednesday, August 11, 2010 / Rules and Regulations definition of the term Government of Iran. Finally, a person listed in Appendix A to Part 560 or otherwise specifically determined by OFAC to be the Government of Iran also may be subject to other sanctions programs administered by OFAC, in which case that person’s name would also appear in the list at Appendix A to 31 CFR chapter V or on OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List (‘‘SDN’’ list), available on OFAC’s Web site. Such a person is identified in Appendix A to Part 560, Appendix A to 31 CFR chapter V, or the SDN list by references (‘‘tags’’), located at the end of the person’s listing, to the sanctions program(s) to which the person is subject (e.g., [IRAN] [NPWMD] or [IRAN] [SDGT]).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: Regulatory Information We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this rule. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(A), the Coast Guard finds this rule is exempt VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:53 Aug 10, 2010 Jkt 220001 This rule makes technical and editorial corrections to Title 33 parts 3 and 165 in the Code of Federal Regulations. This internal agency reorganization establishes Sector Columbia River and is part of a process begun in 2004, intended to strengthen unity of command in Coast Guard port, waterway and coastal areas. Discussion of Rule This rule revises 33 CFR parts 3 and 165 to reflect changes in Coast Guard internal organizational structure. Sector Portland has been disestablished and Sector Columbia River has been established in its place. This rule revises 33 CFR parts 3 and 165 to reflect the Sector Columbia River and Captain of the Port Zone name change in current regulations. This rule is a technical revision reflecting changes in agency procedure and organization, and does not indicate new authorities nor create any substantive requirements. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The term ‘‘small entities’’ comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. We estimate this rule will not impose any additional costs and should have little or no impact on small entities because the provisions of this rule are technical and non-substantive, and will have no substantive effect on the public and will impose no additional costs. Therefore, the Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Collection of Information This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). Federalism A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for federalism. Regulatory Analyses Unfunded Mandates Reform Act We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on 13 of these statutes or executive orders. The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or Tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. Regulatory Planning and Review This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. Because this rule involves nonsubstantive changes and internal agency practices and procedures, it will not impose any additional costs on the public. PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Taking of Private Property This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights.

    This document and additional information concerning OFAC are 
available from OFAC's Web site (http://www.treas.gov/ofac). Certain 
general information pertaining to OFAC's sanctions programs also is 
available via facsimile through a 24-hour fax-on-demand service, tel.: 
202/622-0077.

Background

    The Iranian Transactions Regulations, 31 CFR part 560 (the 
``ITR''), implement a series of Executive orders that began with 
Executive Order 12613, which was issued on October 29, 1987, pursuant 
to authorities including the International Security and Development 
Cooperation Act of 1985 (22 U.S.C. 2349aa-9). In that Order, after 
finding, inter alia, that the Government of Iran was actively 
supporting terrorism as an instrument of state policy, the President 
prohibited the importation of Iranian-origin goods and services. 
Subsequently, in Executive Order 12957, issued on March 15, 1995, under 
the authority of, inter alia, the International Emergency Economic 
Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706) (``IEEPA''), the President declared a 
national emergency with respect to the actions and policies of the 
Government of Iran, including its support for international terrorism, 
its efforts to undermine the Middle East peace process, and its efforts 
to acquire weapons of mass destruction and the means to deliver them. 
To deal with that threat, Executive Order 12957 imposed prohibitions on 
certain transactions with respect to the development of Iranian 
petroleum resources. On May 6, 1995, to further respond to this threat, 
the President issued Executive Order 12959, which imposed comprehensive 
trade and financial sanctions on Iran. Finally, on August 19, 1997, the 
President issued Executive Order 13059 consolidating and clarifying the 
previous orders.
    The ITR implement these Executive orders and prohibit various 
transactions, including, among others, transactions with the Government 
of Iran, a term defined in section 560.304. That definition includes:
    (a) The state and the Government of Iran, as well as any political 
subdivision, agency, or instrumentality thereof;
    (b) Any entity owned or controlled directly or indirectly by the 
foregoing; and
    (c) Any person to the extent that such person is, or has been, or 
to the extent that there is reasonable cause to believe that such 
person is, or has been, * * * acting or purporting to act directly or 
indirectly on behalf of any of the foregoing * * *.
    The phrase entity owned or controlled by the Government of Iran is 
itself defined in section 560.313 of the ITR. OFAC today is publishing 
the names of 21 persons it has determined to be the Government of Iran. 
The names of these persons will be added to Appendix A to Part 560 at a 
later date.
    It is important to note that Appendix A to Part 560 is not a 
comprehensive list of persons falling within the definition of 
Government of Iran. Even if a person is not listed in Appendix A to 
Part 560 or has not otherwise been specifically determined by OFAC to 
be the Government of Iran, if the person satisfies the definition of 
the term Government of Iran in the ITR, U.S. persons and others 
engaging in transactions subject to the ITR are prohibited from 
engaging in transactions with that person, regardless of its location, 
to the same extent they are prohibited from engaging in transactions 
with the persons listed in Appendix A to Part 560 or that have 
otherwise been specifically determined by OFAC to be the Government of 
Iran. U.S. persons and others engaging in transactions subject to the 
ITR also are prohibited from engaging in most transactions with any 
person located in Iran, even if that person does not come within the

[[Page 48563]]

definition of the term Government of Iran. Finally, a person listed in 
Appendix A to Part 560 or otherwise specifically determined by OFAC to 
be the Government of Iran also may be subject to other sanctions 
programs administered by OFAC, in which case that person's name would 
also appear in the list at Appendix A to 31 CFR chapter V or on OFAC's 
Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List (``SDN'' list), 
available on OFAC's Web site. Such a person is identified in Appendix A 
to Part 560, Appendix A to 31 CFR chapter V, or the SDN list by 
references (``tags''), located at the end of the person's listing, to 
the sanctions program(s) to which the person is subject (e.g., [IRAN] 
[NPWMD] or [IRAN] [SDGT]).
    OFAC has determined the following persons to be the Government of 
Iran:
