Mr Won Mo Yoon has provided court enforceable undertakings to the ACCC that, in his capacity as a director or office holder of any corporate entity he is involved with, he will:

refrain from supplying or offering to supply socks in the future that carry false or misleading fibre content labelling and/or any other representations contrary to Part V of the TPA, particularly sections 52, 53(a) and 55; and

ensure that these corporate entities establish a trade practices corporate compliance program.
