Today, Wednesday 6 June, it's World Anti-Counterfeiting Day and ACG is celebrating by attending the Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) Symposium in Nottingham and announcing this years' winners of the ACG Awards for Excellence in Anti-Counterfeiting.
The ACG Awards were first introduced in 1994 to recognise the excellent enforcement work happening in the fight against the trade in counterfeit goods.
“ACG is proud to support Trading Standards and we attend CTSI every year in order to celebrate the work of Trading Standards and build on new and existing relationships.
Counterfeit goods pose an enormous risk to the health and safety of consumers and Trading Standards are involved in significant activities that are helping to combat counterfeiting and seize large numbers of dangers goods” commented Alison Statham, Director General for ACG.

The CTSI Symposium is an annual educational and networking event where trading standards and regulatory practitioners come together, with a range of partners and stakeholders, to discuss and learn about issues, such as counterfeiting which impact on consumers and businesses.
ACG represents more than 3,000 brands affected by this influx of fakes into the UK and delivers an international network of information, advice and contacts on all aspects of IP protection. Working with Government and law enforcement agencies since 1980, ACG is focused on providing an effective and sustained response to counterfeiting.
Membership with the ACG is the best way to work with government and enforcement bodies to protect your brand. Our Roadshows and training days help you reach out to police, trading standards and border force officers and tell them about your genuine products.
