Combating Counterfeiting: A practical guide for European engineering companies
Published: October 2001
Hard copy languages: German, English, French
Counterfeiting is a growing and serious problem for many industries including the engineering industry. Orgalime has therefore led a vigorous campaign against counterfeits since 2001.
Following the workshop "Counterfeiting - The Threat to the European Engineering industry" on 28 March 2001 Orgalime's anti-counterfeiting task force produced a Practical Guide on How to Combat Counterfeiting for European engineering companies. The workshop and the guide were kindly co-financed by the European Commission.
The purpose of this guide is to offer practical advice to companies, in particular SMEs, involved in the manufacturing of engineering products. The advice ranges from information on how to recognise a counterfeited product to what measures to take to ensure that products are protected against counterfeiting. French and German translations of the text are also available.
