CEPS Event

Leveraging New Technological Developments in Preventing Counterfeiting and Illicit Trade


In this stocktaking seminar, organised by CEPS in cooperation with MSL Group, international authorities and organisations will share the results of their latest analysis about the consequences of counterfeiting and illicit trade for the European economy.

Illicit trade and counterfeiting involves money, goods or value gained from illegal activities that generate a wide range of economic, social, environmental or political harms. Governments and society lose hundreds of billions in tax, revenues, income and jobs.

Representatives of Interpol, OECD, WCO and of the European institutions will share their perspectives and policy approaches to tackle the problem of cross-border illicit trade, also with reference to non-EU countries. Finally, the seminar will serve as a forum for industries across different sectors to exchange best practices in tracking, tracing and authenticating traded goods.

Due to the limited number of seats, registrations will be taken in the order of application and no interns will be accepted.

Registration is open as of 9h00 and a buffet lunch will be served as of 13h30. Participation in this event is free of charge.
