New Tool to Combat Circulation of Counterfeits

The National Consumer Secretariat, through the National Council to Combat Piracy (CNCP) and, in partnership with the Brazilian Patent and Trademark Office (BPTO), launched another feature of the National Directory Against Trademark Counterfeiting. The platform now has a public page for authorities with police and inspection powers to quickly access the contacts of representatives of original trademarks to combat counterfeiting.

The National Directory Against Trademark Counterfeiting aims to centralize and make information available about counterfeit products, facilitating identifying and combating of this type of crime. The launched functionality will allow all security and inspection forces to access data on trademarks registered in the Directory, which today total more than 35 thousand. When faced with a counterfeit or smuggled product, the police or inspection agent can immediately contact the legal representative in order to acquire more evidence about the counterfeit.

Registration for reception is open to all interested parties. Information must be requested by email: Registration must also be requested from the BPTO, where advice from brand specialists will be available.
