    Default uk customs / 200-300mw532nm FDA portable

    im wondering how to legalise my purchase and how to avoid taxman nabbing 17.5% of $430 its one of drlavas gbs

    my toughts were mislabeling the price and item but that screws the insurance i got (through lava)

    and do the fda standards(key/shutter/interlock/delay/on light) legalise 1mw+ lasers in the uk? or do i have to do some formfilling?

    or do i just pray to every god there is

    FDA (Food & Drugs Administration)?
    Why would an American department have a say in the legal system of Great Britain?

    Based on the fact that you can already purchase laser pointers up to 5 times greater than 1 mw already, I'd say you are pretty safe from form filling for the moment.

    FDA/CDRH regulates and controls lasers in the USA. not overseas. if it were being imported *INTO* the USA, they would have jurisdiction over it.

    So Tomcat, what is the most powerful laser you have used to date? I'm definately getting some goggles in the Group Buy with mine, because I've seen even what around 30mW can do.
