Yesterday saw 8 brand members join the Anti-Counterfeiting Group (ACG) at the Felixstowe Port. Enforcement Officers based at the port hosted the first ACG IP Open Day since 2019.
The brands that were represented at this Open Day were:
There was a great turn out from the officers who were able to come and talk to brand representative about how to spot a fake from a genuine item.
The ACG are glad to be able to be out on the road with members to be able to present to enforcement officers. It not only allows to help build knowledge around Intellectual property and counterfeiting but is a great way to build relationships between brands and enforcement.
Keep your eyes peeled as more IP Open Days will be in the diary for 2022.
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.
