BICSI President Jerry Bowman recently presented research from the Communications Cable and Connectivity Association (CCCA) at Europol’s Awareness and Knowledge Building Conference on Counterfeit Household Products and Fake Automotive Parts. Held in Alicante, Spain, the conference included speakers from the European Union (EU), world law enforcement and customs officials such as Europol, Interpol, and World Customs Organization, as well as private sector experts from major household, industry and automotive brands.

“All ITS industry stakeholders are affected by counterfeit and substandard product,” said Bowman. “Everyone in the supply chain has a duty to ensure that the product they are purchasing or installing conforms with safety and quality standards and regulations.

“When a counterfeit product is installed it’s more than a performance issue — it can threaten the safety of the workplace and put the consumer at risk.”
