In collaboration with HP’s Anti-Counterfeiting and Fraud (ACF) Programme, authorities in the Emirate of Dubai have identified and confiscated fraudulent products

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, April 1, 2018 -   HP has worked closely with local officials in the Emirate of Dubai to close down two internationally active manufacturers and wholesalers of fake print supplies. 

Between December 2017 and February 2018, the officials raided numerous premises across the region, including outlet stores, clandestine workshops, and hidden warehouses. In total, the authorities confiscated 35,400 illicit print components as well as 1,200 ready-for-sale counterfeit toner cartridges. 

Counterfeiting is a crime. For users, such illegal imitations can cause a multitude of problems that can cause performance and reliability issues. Should your printer break because of using counterfeit printer ink or toner, you could also have issues with your manufacturer’s warranty becoming not applicable. 

In contrast, original HP products are designed to meet HP’s strict quality and reliability standards, based on a long history of inventing and testing. Original HP LaserJet and HP inkjet cartridges, unlike counterfeits, benefit from superior performance and consistent results.

“HP commends the cooperation and swift action of the Emirate of Dubai officials and their determination to apprehend and prosecute counterfeiters who break the law. We are proud of our continued work to bring counterfeiters to justice in the Middle East,“ said Glenn Jones, Director Global Anti-Counterfeit Programme, HP.

“Through our unwavering efforts and commitment to removing counterfeit products from the market, we continue to focus on the protection of our customers through our Anti Counterfeiting and Fraud Programme.”

Across EMEA over the last five years, approximately 12 million counterfeits and components have been seized by local authorities, supported by HP. HP has conducted over 4,500 audits and inspections (CPPAs and CDIs) of partners’ stocks or suspicious deliveries for customers. 

Through HP’s Anti Counterfeiting and Fraud (ACF) Programme, the company actively educates its customers and partners to be vigilant against fake printing supplies. It also cooperates closely with local and global law enforcement authorities to detect and dismantle illegal operations that produce counterfeit HP printing components.
