The agency's approach is to warn the public to identify any internet site that promotes the sale of PPD, prohibit their import, and fine anyone who sells or uses PPD.
Federal law prohibits the use of GPS jammer in the United States, and recent enforcement measures reflect the agency's ongoing efforts to prevent such incidents.
