Issued by: 

JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (JPMC) has agreed to remit $5,263,171 to settle its potential civil liability for apparent violations involving the processing of 87 net settlement payments with a total value of $1,022,408,149, of which approximately $1,500,000 (0.14%) appears to have been attributable to interests of sanctions-targeted parties, and which therefore appear to have violated one or more of the following sanctions programs administered by OFAC: the Cuban Assets Control Regulations, 31 C.F.R. Part 515 (CACR); the Iranian Transactions and Sanctions Regulations, 31 C.F.R. Part 560 (ITSR); and the Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferators Sanctions Regulations, 31 C.F.R. Part 544 (WMDPSR).

OFAC has determined that JPMC voluntarily self-disclosed the apparent violations, and that the apparent violations constitute a non-egregious case. The total base penalty amount for the apparent violations is $7,797,290.

Separately, OFAC issued a Finding of Violation to JPMC for violations of the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Sanctions Regulations, 31 C.F.R. part 598 (FNKSR), and the Syrian Sanctions Regulations, 31 C.F.R. part 542 (SSR). There is no monetary penalty associated with a Finding of Violation.
