Note:

  1. The number of cases for which sanctions were imposed is inconsistent with the subtotal for each category of violation because certain cases involve more than one category of violation.
  2. The Personal Information Protection Act was enacted on October 1, 2012. The FTC is the competent authority for applying the said Act on the multi-level sales businesses.
  3. The Multi-Level Marketing Supervision Act was promulgated and enacted on January 29, 2014
