Otkritie Bank received the status of Indirect Particоверpant CIPS (new payment system of the People’s Republic of China) on 24/03/2016 through Bank of Communications, Shanghai, China (correspondent bank). The main advantage of joining the system is the status of an identifier in the CIPS system assigned to the SWIFT code of Otkritie Bank, which will allow us to route any incoming payment to our Bank, including payment orders with incomplete information (for example, only SWIFT BIC of Otkritie Bank). At the same time, joining CIPS will not entail rerouting to Bank of Communications, Shanghai, China, of the payments with full details indicating another Chinese correspondent bank of Otkritie Bank.
We’d like to draw the attention of our clients and counterparties to the fact that payments in US dollars will not be executed by the Bank, if at least one of the parties to the transaction (including an intermediary bank) is an individual or an organization on the sanctions list («Specially Designated Nationals» / SDN), published by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the US Treasury Department at: https://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/sanctions.
This is due to the ban on such payments imposed by foreign correspondent banks, obliged to comply with the sanctions.
At the same time, please note that foreign correspondent banks also impose restrictions on any payments in US dollars, if at least one of the parties to the transaction (including an intermediary bank) is the resident of any of the following countries: North Korea, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Cuba. Therefore, the execution of such payments cannot be guaranteed by the Bank for reasons beyond its control.
