Customs looking for counterfeit imports
June 29, 2005,
WASHINGTON – U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has initiated an intellectual property rights (IPR) audit program, targeting companies thought to be at “high risk” for importing counterfeit or infringing merchandise.
“High-risk” companies are identified after studying importer history, shipper history, country of export and commodity type. CBP has specified that its focus is no longer relegated to well-known brands and high-end products.
