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. The individual unit cost of the items were low,  and only limited elements of each unit sold were ultimately sourced from DPRK. However this was enough for regulatory action. A timely and cautionary reminder as we all continue to adapt to disruptive and world changing events at speed.

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.
