Assets blocked pursuant to sanctions administered by Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) may be released only through a specific license issued by OFAC. Since February 2000, use of this form to apply for the unblocking of funds transfers has been mandatory pursuant to 31 C.F.R. 501.801(b)(2). Use of this form greatly facilitates and speeds applicants' submissions and OFAC's processing.

  Total Approved Previously Approved Change Due to New Statute Change Due to Agency Discretion Change Due to Adjustment in Estimate Change Due to Potential Violation of the PRA
Annual Number of Responses 3,000 3,000 0 0 0 0
Annual Time Burden (Hours) 1,500 1,500 0 0 0 0
Annual Cost Burden (Dollars) 0 0 0 0 0 0
The estimated burden has increased from 2,400 to 3,000 applicants due to the addition of several sanctions programs since 2016. The associated cost has thereby increased from $24,000 to $79,500 due to both the increase in sanctions programs as well as the increase in wage rates (including the additional 44% cost of private sector employee benefits) used in the calculation.
