 Settlement Agreement between the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control and BD White Birch Investment LLC.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) today announced a $372,465 settlement with BD White Birch Investment LLC (“White Birch USA”) headquartered in Greenwich, Connecticut, to settle White Birch USA’s potential civil liability for three apparent violations of the Sudanese Sanctions Regulations, 31 C.F.R. part 538 (SSR).  White Birch USA appears to have violated §§ 538.205 and 538.206 of the SSR when it facilitated the sale and shipment of 543.952 metric tons of Canadian-origin paper from Canada to Sudan with a value of $354,602.26.  These export transactions occurred in April and December 2013. Various personnel within White Birch USA and its Canadian subsidiary, White Birch Paper Canada Company NSULC, were actively involved in discussing, arranging, and executing the export transactions to Sudan.  OFAC determined that White Birch USA did not voluntarily self-disclose the apparent violations to OFAC, and that the apparent violations constitute a non-egregious case.
