It's a sunny Saturday, on a Bank Holiday weekend, but that didn't stop ACG and the brand members from visiting Gatwick airport to train Border Force Officers on the issues of counterfeit goods and how best to identify fake products.
Gatwick is a major international airport and the eighth-busiest airport in Europe. That's why ACG was delighted to welcome Border Force officers from detection teams across the airport including; Cargo, the Green Channel, VAT Reclaim and the Red Channel. The ACG exhibition enabled members to demonstrate genuine and counterfeit goods from brands including; adidas, the North Face, Bio-Oil, Levi Strauss, Persil and UGG.

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.
