On November 30, 2016, the ITC issued a Seizure and Forfeiture Order in Certain Ink Cartridges and Components Thereof (Inv. No. 337-TA-946).

In the order, the ITC stated that the “U.S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (‘Customs’) has informed the Commission that (i) the owner, importer or consignee (or the agent of such person) of certain ink cartridges covered by a general exclusion order attempted to import the articles into the United States; (ii) Customs denied entry of the articles into the United States by reason of the general exclusion order; and (iii) upon such denial of entry, Customs provided the owner, importer, or consignee of the articles (or the agent of such person) with written notice of the aforesaid exclusion order and the fact that seizure and forfeiture would result from any further attempt to import the articles into the United States.”

Accordingly, the ITC ordered that “Ink Cartridges and Components Thereof that are imported in violation of the general exclusion order issued in the above-captioned investigation are to be seized and forfeited to the United States, if imported by the following firm: Green Project Inc., 15335 Don Julian Rd., City of Industry, California 91745, or any affiliated companies, parents, subsidiaries, or other related business entities, or any of their successors or assigns.”
