2015 Situation Report on Counterfeiting in the European Union Cover photo
A joint project between Europol and the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market

The aim of this report is to inform the public, industry and other stakeholders, as well as policy makers and practitioners at EU and national level, about the current situation of criminal networks that are active in the production and distribution of counterfeited goods in the territory of the EU. This document will provide information on routes, entry points, criminal modus operandi and current activities of law enforcement and the private sector. The report will also show links between counterfeiting and other crime areas, using various case studies provided by EU Member States and private stakeholders.
