EUIPO Observatory’s Anti-Counterfeiting Technology Guide

The EUIPO Observatory launched a document called the Anti-Counterfeiting Technology Guide in February 2021 to address the issue that counterfeiting poses to supply chains and the lack of information on anti-counterfeiting solutions.  

This guide is intended for all traders and enterprises (including small and medium-sized enterprises) interested in gaining knowledge and building an anti-counterfeiting strategy based on their specific business needs. The anti-counterfeiting technologies are presented in five main categories: electronic; marking; chemical and physical; mechanical; and technologies for digital media. 

The guide also includes information on complementary technologies and ISO standards that can be applied alongside anti-counterfeiting technologies to increase the effectiveness of overall strategies and solutions.
