Anti counterfeiting seminar
26 March 2012
‘Strategies for Counterfeit Avoidance in the Electronics Supply Chain’ organised by the UK Electronics Alliance, is to be held at 1VS Conference Centre in London on Tuesday 3 April 2012.
Developments in the world of counterfeit electronics are moving fast. Counterfeits are becoming more sophisticated and difficult to detect while initiatives continue to develop to combat the treat. However, a recent survey conducted by the UK Electronics Alliance revealed that there is still work to be done to raise awareness of best practice in dealing with counterfeits.
Some 47% of shipments of counterfeits cited in the survey were returned to the supplier for credit, not only returning them into the supply chain but also, probably innocently, committing a criminal offence by ‘trading’ in counterfeits.
Meanwhile, only 11% of incidents were reported to the police or Trading Standards and 50% of companies who had been victims of counterfeiting have revised their policies and procedures to minimise the risk of further counterfeits in the future.
As part of its strategy to help companies address this growing threat, following the success of its first two seminars, the UK Electronics Alliance is organising a further seminar to be held at 1VS Conference Centre. With the emphasis on providing practical help and advice, this seminar will build on our previous seminars by providing an update of the work being undertaken by various groups to combat this threat.
