Eli Lilly and Company


KBC Trading Co in Iran "acts as a manufacturers representative firm for large and reowned pharmaceutical companies in the world including Eli Lilly and Sanofi Pasteur…"


According to its 2016 SEC Disclosure: "Our activities have included supplying medicines for patient use in Iran. We ship our products to Iran and conduct related activities in accordance with our corporate policies and licenses issued by the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control. We recently completed a review in which we determined that between the last quarter of 2013 and the first half of 2015, some of these shipments, which were arranged by a third-party logistics company, were sent to Iran on aircraft owned or operated by Iran Air, which is a designated air carrier under Executive Order 13382."


Over the last three presidential administrations, the United States government has granted Eli Lilly and Company 19 special licenses to do business in Iran. (New York Times, "Companies with Permission to Bypass Sanctions," 12/24/10)
