"My testimony today summarizes the findings from our January 2018 report, which was released on February 27, 2018, on CBP's and ICE's IPR enforcement at U.S. borders. This testimony addresses (1) what is known about counterfeit goods entering the United States and the challenges they present, (2) efforts CBP and ICE have undertaken to enhance IPR enforcement and the extent to which they have assessed the results of these efforts, and (3) the extent to which CBP and ICE collaborate on IPR enforcement as well as ways in which they coordinate with the private sector in enforcing IPR."
