RILA formed the Buy Safe America Coalition (Coalition) to enjoin associations and companies in the fight against criminals using third party marketplaces to sell dangerous, defective, and stolen goods to unsuspecting consumers. The Coalition has grown to encompass over 20 associations and over a dozen companies with interest increasing.
The Coalition’s mission is to raise awareness of organized retail crime on Capitol Hill and within the administration and to enact the Integrity, Notification, Fairness in Online Retail Marketplaces (INFORM) Act, which brings needed transparency and accountability to third party marketplaces and its sellers. The INFORM Act will provide law enforcement with information to help track down and prosecute these criminal enterprises and reduce the sale of stolen and counterfeit goods on third party marketplaces. It also stops criminals from brazenly stealing from storefronts keeping retail employees safe.
