The Court of Auditors (a French political institution), has published the 2nd of September six recommendations in order to strengthen the efficiency of the public action against counterfeiting.

  • recommendation n° 1 : proceed in collaboration with the national anti-counterfeiting committee, to an objective analysis of the national and sectorial economic consequences of counterfeiting.
  • recommendation n°2 : create an institution, at the interdepartmental level, for strategic thinking and operational governance of the fight against counterfeiting.
  • recommendation n°3 : strengthen the role of the national anti-counterfeiting committee.
  • recommendation n°4 : adopt, at the European Union level, a text of law that would reestablish the control of customs over the borders for a better control of the traffic and transition of goods.
  • recommendation n°5 : make sure that no territorial region of production of counterfeited products could escape from the control of public agents and possible repressive actions.
  • recommendation n°6 : give the justice the means to sanction more often and with more severity the crime of counterfeiting.
