New regulations for United States Laser orders

  • raindy @DX Staff @DX Staff Monday, August 18, 2008 10:53 PM Reply
    The following information relates to United States customers and USA orders only. Other customers may ignore this thread.

    New USA government (FDA) regulations enforced by PayPal are now in effect affecting USA Customers who have recently purchased lasers greater than 5mW (excluding 5mW) and USA customers who plan to purchase lasers greater than 5mW.

    Due to new regulations enforced by the US FDA and PayPal, orders of lasers units greater than 5mW shipped to the United States are no longer accepted. Orders of 5mW or less is still accepted and unaffected by this regulation. If you are located in the United States, it is legally required that you DO NOT order lasers greater than 5mW.

    For United States customers who have placed orders for such items, if your order is not yet shipped, it will be fully refund with a few days. Customers waiting for replacements please contact us: http://services.dealextreme.com/form/ordertracking.aspx.

    Update: We have just received the new information that order lasers under the United States Paypal Account and Credit Card also no longer accepted, so please do not place an order for the lasers greater than 5mW if your paypal account or credit card is from United States, even it intents send to another place.

    Nah they wouldnt

    PayPal only cares about the US first, and us here in Au get ignored....

    Still, this provides an easy answer to the threads that keep popping up.

    Indeed.

    I forgot we are just a backwater at the other end of the world and don't matter. :)

    How foolish of me!

    (Although I can't wait to see a laser parcel from Dx show up on "Border Security"!)

    Is this for all laser products such as modules and raw laser diodes or just pointers?

    paypal dont realy have anything to do with this.
    5mw is a girly laser anyway, i think atleast 30mw should be legal.
    im in australia and im an astronomer, my 5mw laser which didnt have a vissible beam (unless looking down beam)broke, i was going to buy a 30mw but i guess i cant.
    but maybe it was my 5mw laser, maybe it was only outputing 2mw, well i cant own a 5mw so to bad for me.

    before the ban i was very careful not to let it go near anyone, screw that now. its like if your a kid at school and you want to be an astronuat and you put everything into it and then you realise, im never going to space, il be a drug addict musician instead! not sterotyping, just an example.
