CEPS, in cooperation with the MSL Group, has the pleasure of inviting you to a seminar on new police developments and business practices in the prevention of counterfeiting and illicit trade.
Officials from the OECD, the World Customs Organisation and the European institutions will present the results of their latest research and policy approaches to tackle the problem of cross-border illicit trade, also with reference to non-EU countries. Business representatives will share their insights from practical case studies to help tackle the problem of illicit trade through the application of new technologies.
The seminar, the second of its kind devoted to this subject, is conceived as a forum for industries from various sectors, representatives of institutions and their stakeholders to exchange best practices in initiatives aimed at preventing and following up from a regulatory perspective, as well as tracking, tracing and authenticating traded goods. The event will address the following themes:
? The growing economic impact of counterfeiting and illicit trade
? International and European initiatives promoting anti-counterfeiting technologies
? Cooperation among stakeholders in designing and applying supply chain security technology
