The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) announced that U.S.-based dental products manufacturer, Dentsply Sirona Inc. (the successor in interest to Dentsply International Inc. (DII)), agreed to pay $1,220,400 to settle charges that two of DII’s subsidiaries violated U.S. sanctions on Iran. Specifically, OFAC alleges that, between 2009 and 2012, these DII subsidiaries exported 37 shipments of dental equipment and supplies from the United States to distributors in third-countries, with knowledge or reason to know that the goods were ultimately destined for Iran. OFAC determined that the alleged violations were not voluntarily disclosed.
