Around 80 enforcement officers from Trading Standards, Border Force and the police joined ACG members in Twickenham yesterday for the final Intellectual Property (IP) Roadshow of 2016.
Delegates enjoyed presentations from; Graham Mogg, ACG's Intelligence Co-ordinator; Gavin Terry, IP Lead Officer from the Chartered Trading Standards Institute; Lee Deakin of the Intelligence Hub at the Intellectual Property Office; and Peter Ratcliffe from the Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit (PIPCU).
More than 35 ACG brands exhibited genuine and counterfeit goods during the breaks and updated enforcement officers on counterfeit product issues and the latest techniques for identifying fakes.
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.
