N.J. shipper pays $422,000 fine for export violations
Roper Scientific has agreed to pay a $422,000 civil penalty to the U.S. Commerce Department to settle charges that it illegally exported night vision cameras.
The Commerce Department alleges the Trenton, N.J.-based company made these exports to numerous countries between March 13, 2000 and August 24, 2000 without the proper export licenses. The company is also accused of making false statements on shipper’s export declarations filed to the government.
The Commerce Department said Roper voluntarily “self-disclosed” the violations and cooperated with the investigation.
