Certain general information pertaining to OFAC’s sanctions programs also is available via facsimile through a 24-hour fax-ondemand service, tel.: 202/622–0077. Background On May 12, 2014, the President issued Executive Order 13667 (79 FR 28387, May 15, 2014) (E.O. 13667), invoking the authority of, inter alia, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.), and section 5 of the United Nations Participation Act (22 U.S.C. 287c). OFAC is issuing the Central African Republic Sanctions Regulations, 31 CFR part 553 (the ‘‘Regulations’’), to implement E.O. 13667, pursuant to authorities delegated to the Secretary of the Treasury in E.O. 13667. A copy of E.O. 13667 appears in Appendix A to this part. The Regulations are being published in abbreviated form at this time for the purpose of providing immediate guidance to the public. OFAC intends to supplement this part 553 with a more comprehensive set of regulations, which may include additional interpretive and definitional guidance and additional general licenses and statements of licensing policy. The appendix to the Regulations will be removed when OFAC supplements this part with a more comprehensive set of regulations. Public Participation Because the Regulations involve a foreign affairs function, the provisions of Executive Order 12866 and 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 PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 rule, the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612) does not apply. Paperwork Reduction Act The collections of information related to the Regulations are contained in 31 CFR Part 501 (the ‘‘Reporting, Procedures and Penalties Regulations’’). Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3507), those collections of information have been approved by the Office of Management and Budget under control number 1505– 0164. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless the collection of information displays a valid control number.

For the reasons set forth in the preamble, the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control adds part 553 to 31 CFR chapter V to read as follows: PART 553–CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC SANCTIONS REGULATIONS Subpart A—Relation of This Part to Other Laws and Regulations Sec. 553.101 Relation of this part to other laws and regulations.
