Another Seizure and Forfeiture Order has been issued to a Washington-based company for attempting to import certain inkjet cartridges that violate the standing General Exclusion Order related to No. 337-TA-740 investigation.
According to the legal documents submitted to RT Media, Washington-based YMCK Systems Inc. has allegedly violated the GEO related to No. 337-TA-740 investigation. The U.S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (“Customs”) has denied the entry of the imported products from YMCK Systems Inc. and reported to the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC).
