Additional language in the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) gives guidance on how manufacturers themselves could set up reimportation. The NPRM is available in draft form today (Dec. 18), and is expected to be published officially in the Federal Register on Dec. 23.”

“Brandman discussed why theft-related loss is getting worse, and said that the value of the product plus a low risk factor, lax security and an inadequate criminal justice system equals high gain, low risk. Plus, says Brandman, the internet combined with small parcel delivery service make it easy to distribute stolen goods.
