Event Agenda

CEPS, in cooperation with MSL Group, invites you to a seminar on the business practices and policy developments in the fight against illicit trade.

The widening scope of counterfeiting and growth of illicit trade is becoming an increasing economic, social and security threat for many countries, affecting health, safety and trust among citizens. Consequently, business, policy makers, consumer protection organisations and enforcement authorities, at national and international levels, are doubling their efforts to tackle these serious crimes.

The design and deployment of innovative digital tools, coherent rules and internationally viable technical standards, underpinned by more effective public-private collaboration, is crucial to win the battle against one of the most lucrative and least sanctioned actions of organised crime across the globe.

Industry experts and representatives from the EU, OECD, WCO and national authorities will share their perspectives and policy approaches to tackle the problem of cross-border illicit trade, also with reference to non-EU countries. This seminar, the fourth of its kind co-hosted by CEPS and MSL Group, will address the following themes:

  • Progress and barriers to using digital technologies to improve traceability and authentication throughout the supply and value chain.
  • Technical and regulatory requirements for enhancing digitalisation of traceability and authentication.
  • International initiatives to foster cooperation among stakeholders
