 Settlement Agreement between the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control and Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. and its foreign subsidiary, Jiangsu Guoqiang Tools Co., Ltd.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) today announced a $1,869,144 settlement with Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (“Stanley Black & Decker”) and its foreign subsidiary, Jiangsu Guoqiang Tools Co., Ltd. (“GQ”).  Stanley Black & Decker, a company based in New Britain, Connecticut, on behalf of itself and its subsidiary located in China, GQ, has agreed to settle its potential civil liability for 23 apparent violations of the Iranian Transactions and Sanctions Regulations, 31 C.F.R. part 560 (ITSR).  Specifically, between on or about June 29, 2013 and on or about December 30, 2014, GQ exported and attempted to export 23 shipments of power tools and spare parts, with a total value of $3,201,647.73, to Iran or to a third country with knowledge that such goods were intended specifically for supply, transshipment, or reexportation, directly or indirectly, to Iran, which would have been prohibited if engaged in by a U.S. person, under §§ 560.203 and 560.204 of the ITSR.  These transactions appear to have violated § 560.215 of the ITSR.  OFAC determined that Stanley Black & Decker voluntarily self-disclosed the apparent violations on behalf of GQ, and that the apparent violations constitute an egregious case.
