US CRACKDOWN ON COUNTERFEIT GOODS TO INCREASE E-COMMERCE COSTS

On 10 February, Loadstar reported that parcel shipments into the US are set to cost more as, in addition to rising charges for e-commerce sent by mail, the government is moving to raise charges to cover the cost of inspecting incoming parcels for counterfeit goods and illicit substances.  A new Executive Order requires new regulations and that e-commerce operators step up controls – and rules to determine if foreign postal services are doing their part of the job (and presumably sanctions them in some way if they are thought to be falling short).
