The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) commends the efforts of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) as reflected in CBP’s annual report on intellectual property rights (IPR) seizure statistics report for fiscal year 2008.

According to CBP, the value of all seized counterfeit and pirated products for the year ending Sept. 30, 2008 was nearly US$273 million, an increase of 38% over 2007, including a 43% increase in seizures of counterfeit electrical products during 2008 over 2007, with a total value of almost $23 million in 2008.

The electrical products category represented 8% of all seizures and ranked fifth among all product categories of counterfeit goods seized. In 2007, the category for electrical products was the third ranked category of seizures but also represented 8% of all seizures. Seizures of counterfeit batteries totaled $1.8 million. Other electrical articles seized include power adaptors, extension cords, circuit breakers, and lighting products. NEMA says the customs data indicates that the counterfeit electrical articles come from China and Hong Kong.
