Working together since 1980

Representing the voice of business in shaping an effective deterrent to counterfeiting in the UK

We help to steer effective policy, promote evidenced based actions, empower multi-agency partnerships and strengthen international collaboration. The trade in fakes has never been more prolific, mainly because of the exponential rise in counterfeiting activities on the internet in recent years. It is now a global epidemic, posing major threats to consumers and national economies, and funding other crimes such as drugs, guns and people smuggling. Interpol has also reported evidence of links to terrorist organisations, in the Middle East and elsewhere.


A business’s brand is one of its most valuable assets and it needs protecting. The ACG Guide to Brand Protection is a comprehensive and up-to-date source of information to guide you through the labyrinth of brand protection.
