U.S. Government Releases New Online Counterfeit Reporting System

August 11, 2008 § Leave a comment


U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Office of International Trade has developed a new online trade violation reporting system called e-Allegations where members of the public can confidentially report suspected counterfeits.

The new e-reporting system includes an anonymous online form via the CBP website, making it easy for consumers to notify authorities about possible trade violations.

Violations that may be reported online through e-Allegations include:
•    misclassification of merchandise
•    country of origin markings
•    health and safety violations
•    intellectual property rights violations
•    textile or other trade violations.

Any pictures or documentation you may have to substantiate your counterfeiting claim can also be submitted once you receive an e-Allegation number. Click here for more information.

If you would like to submit a confidential tip to the government, please visit the CBP’s website.
