[Video] U.S. Targets Counterfeit Consumer Electronics

by Maureen Perroni, on January 25, 2017

Customs officials in the U.S. are working hard to stem the flow of counterfeit electronic consumer goods, which have a higher risk of malfunctioning and causing injury or property damage.

Named "Operation Surge Protector," this effort will focus on power adapters, as well as devices powered by lithium-ion batteries. ICE officials will attempt to seize such devices that cross the border.

Manufacturers can help stem counterfeiting by making it easier to trace genuine components and finished products to their sources. A comprehensive Enterprise Labeling strategy is the first line of defense. Loftware's centralized solution allows industries to implement the serialization and traceability techniques they need to track legitimate goods throughout the supply chain, ensuring customers get exactly what they pay for.
