Supply Chain Due Diligence and OFAC

As companies work to rebuild global supply chains, PSA examines the case of e.l.f. Cosmetics, Inc. and its fine for sanctions violations. The DOJ found that these violations occurred because of a “largely inadequate” compliance program.

PSA has prepared a brief exploring the implications of this case and describing the importance of a robust supply chain due diligence program that covers not only a company’s suppliers, but also those suppliers’ own affiliates and business partners.
