At the start of 2019, OFAC agreed to an almost USD 1 million settlement with US company e.l.f. Cosmetics for apparent violations of North Korean-targeted economic sanctions. Notably, this was due to the conduct of the company’s supplier, and not the company itself. 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.
