- Ericsson Caused Violation by Having U.S. Party Ship Equipment to Sudan
- U.S. Employee Facilitated Sudan Business
- OFAC Expects Parties Conducting International Business to Have Robust Compliance Processes
In June 2018, the U.S. Treasury Department, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) announced that Ericsson, a Swedish telecommunications company, agreed to pay approximately $145,000 for violating U.S. sanctions on Sudan. Among other things, this is one of the few OFAC enforcement actions explicitly premised on a non-U.S. actor causing a U.S. company to violate U.S. sanctions.
