Finding Fakes: ICCE features in Dealer Support Magazine following launch of Reseller Support Factsheet.

As the year in which ICCE marked its 20th anniversary draws to a close, the organisation is stepping up its support for the resellers of imaging supplies, with the launch of a new factsheet which helps them identify counterfeit consumables.

This follows on from ICCE’s work last year, when the association released a video to help resellers identify counterfeit consumables. You can download the new fact sheet and also see the video at http://www.icce.net/resellers/.

The market in these illegal imaging supplies is now believed to be worth several million Euros, and ICCE is seeking to work with dealers to stop these illegal supply chains.

ICCE member Valerie Whitelaw, a Brand Protection Manager for Corporate Security at Xerox, told Dealer Support about the challenges the association faces in stopping the sale of counterfeit products. “Having worked with law enforcement agencies around the world, I have seen first-hand the human cost of allowing these illegal supply chains to continue” she said. “The best way to protect consumers is for businesses to work together and alert the relevant authorities when they suspect they are being offered fake goods.  It’s only through co-operation that can we can protect consumers and jobs.”
