Exclamation Canada to U.S

Hey so I live in Canada and I want to sell a green 200mW laser on ebay, but I'm not sure if I should allow shipping to the U.S. What is the worst that can happen if caught while sent to the U.S? Do you think I should let there be shipping to the U.S? It's just that I don't want to get into legal trouble. What would you do if you lived in Canada?

Well we need more details.
Does the laser have the FDA 5 point safety and a valid FDA accession number?
If it doesn't you can not import it into the us. Sure people do but some times they do get caught by customs and confiscated.

You need key, interlock, shutter, 2 second delay, and power indicator light.

Quote:
Accession numbers are unique identifiers for reports in our database, and are provided in the CDRH acknowledgement letters. An accession number facilitates communication about specific reports because all parties can use the accession number to identify the document being discussed. Additionally, FDA imports personnel use accession numbers to confirm that a manufacturer has, at a minimum, complied with the reporting requirements for the product being imported.

As a retailer, I can tell you there is no legal trouble for you to ship lasers to USA, for we have send many lasers to USA

your not allowed to import them according to US law. However, your not in the USA and your a canadian, so these laws don't apply to you. I'm not familiar with canadian law so there may be something that says you have to observe the importation laws of other countries......i've no idea.

worst case scenario: US customs finds the laser and destroys it.
then you have to decide who is responsible. Most of the time the seller is responsible until the product arrives to the customer in the condition it was purchased.

this case is different since goods are being illegally imported.....
I would just make sure the customer knows exactly how your products are packaged and labeled, and make sure they understand the risk of spending all that money, and the risk of it being taken away....

Ok so I understand... Its my responsibility until the item reaches the buyer? Also, now theres a guy bidding from France. Are there any French laws about lasers? I can't find any for some reason...

Yes, they just banned the import of handhelds. You have to speak fluent French to find it. Its not a law, its a ministerial directive. The rule is in the French Senate as we type to become law.
They have also banned indoor laser shows under most circumstances.
