In late April 2021, the German software company SAP SE (SAP) entered into nonprosecution and settlement agreements with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) National Security Division, the U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), and the U.S. Department of the Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). These resolutions followed SAP’s voluntary self-disclosure of violations of U.S. export control and sanctions laws and mark the first application of DOJ’s December 2019 Export Control and Sanctions Enforcement Policy, which emphasizes the importance of voluntary self-disclosure.
