Automated Blocking & Reject Reporting System


ABARRS HV is intended to facilitate the following activities:
  • The public’s submission to the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of reports on blocked property pursuant to 31 C.F.R. § 501.603.
  • The public’s submission to OFAC of reports on rejected funds transfers pursuant to 31 C.F.R. § 501.604.
  • The public’s review of their submitted ABARRS HV reports to assist in the preparation of their Annual Report of Blocked Property.
ABARRS HV does not support:
  • The unblocking of property that has been blocked (“frozen”) by an institution. If you are trying to unblock property that has been blocked pursuant to OFAC sanctions, you are directed to file an electronic application to request the release of blocked property by visiting the following link: http://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/sanctions/Pages/licensing.aspx.
  • The submission of the Annual Reports of Blocked Property. Annual reports shall be filed using Form TDF 90-22.50. Contact OFAC at 1-800-530-6322 for more information about how to submit annual reports.
  • The submission of reports required by an OFAC general or specific license.
  • The submission of a (Voluntary) Self-Disclosure. To submit a disclosure to OFAC regarding sanctions violations, please use the following address:
