Another interesting and informative training day was held for Border Force officers at Heathrow airport yesterday.
The Anti-Counterfeiting Group (ACG) encouraged enforcement officers from Heathrow Customs, the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) and Slough Trading Standards services to visit ACG member exhibits from brands such as; Jaguar Land Rover, Superdry, Levi, Louis Vuitton and Sony Entertainment.
Officers discussed their experiences of seizing products and learnt how to identify whether a branded product is genuine or counterfeit.
