We believe that all businesses should have the right to protect their brand from being unfairly exploited by another individual or organisation.
That’s why we represent the interests of: UK and international manufacturers, distributors and retailers; lawyers; trade mark agents; and brand protection specialists, and campaign to change perceptions of counterfeiting as a harmless activity and expose it as a serious organised crime.
Our members represent more than three thousand brands, in over thirty countries and every year they support jobs, research and product development to help create a strong, vibrant economy.
ACG is a leading authority on the global trade in counterfeit goods.
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.
