As part of the plea, VW agreed to sweeping reforms, new audits and oversight by an independent monitor for three years after admitting to installing secret software in 580,000 U.S. vehicles. The software has exceeded emissions testing over a six-year period and emitted up to 40 times more pollutants than is permitted by law. In separate civil decisions on environmental, customs and financial debt, VW agreed to pay $1.5 billion. These include the EPA`s request to impose civil sanctions against VW for the importation and sale of these vehicles by VW, as well as requests for customs fraud filed by the U.S. Customs and Border Management (CBP) authorities. In addition, the EPA agreement requires abstention measures to avoid future violations. The agreements also resolve alleged violations of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act (FIRREA). Unless it is based on an admission from VW, the rights determined by civil agreements are only charges. The agreement states that the IAV played a minor role in the offensive and that the company has already taken steps to improve its compliance programs and internal controls.

In accordance with the resolution, IAV agreed to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to violate U.S. law and pay a $35 million fine. U.S. District Judge Sean Cox accepted the company`s guilty plea for conspiracy to commit fraud, obstruction and entry of goods on charges of false charges and filed an April 21 sentence, where he must decide to approve the terms of the plea agreement. « Volkswagen deeply regrets the behaviour that led to the diesel crisis. The agreements we have reached with the U.S. government reflect our determination to fight faults that are contrary to all values that cost Volkswagen so much, » the company said in a statement. « Volkswagen is not the same company today as it was 18 months ago. » DETROIT/ WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Volkswagen AG VOWG_p.DE pleaded guilty on Friday as part of a January deal with the U.S. Department of Justice over the automaker`s diesel exhaust scandal for fraud, obstruction of justice and falsification of statements.
