Do you have a problem with counterfeits of your electrical products? 

Don’t be left out, join the BEAMA Anti-Counterfeiting Working Group – and protect your brand – in the fight against counterfeit electrical products, NOW!

Responsibility 

Responsibility for ensuring only genuine quality products are used lies with all those specifying, purchasing and installing electrical equipment. International Law prohibits counterfeiting – free riding on names/reputations of others, receiving undue profits, providing no guarantee on defective goods. BEAMA’s campaign aims to stem the flow of counterfeit products at source – in marketplaces/transit. 

 

Anti-counterfeiting measures 

Stay ahead of counterfeiters: 

  • Design-in anti-counterfeiting measures 
  • Trademark/logo protection/patents – ensure they are registered/valid in China/market countries 
  • Country of origin/brand name should be stamped – embossed is more effective – on products 
  • Mould-in protected marks (adhesive labels are no deterrent) 
  • Ensure high quality security labels/holograms. 
  • Use printed packaging 

Suspect ‘too-good’ prices: 

  • If in doubt, check with brand owner/certification body 
  • Be sure – you are responsible 
  • Purchase only from an authorised supplier/distributor
