Fight against counterfeit - trainings for the customs officials to recognize fake products

The field of countefeit does not know what crisis is; in Italy we are dealing with a turnover of 7 billions of Euros where the 70% of the seized products belongs to the textiles and fashion fields (2013 Report by the Ministry of Economic Development).
In order to fight against counterfeit also the main fashion and luxury brands have taken action by organising training courses for customs officials to recognize fake products. In particular, brands such as Louis Vuitton, Prada and Nike, have set up courses for the agents of the Customs Agency of Bergamo.
At the seat of the Orio al Serio airport, where only in 2013 over 122 thousands of counterfeit products were seized, customs officials are periodically updated by the technicians of the fashion labels on how to distinguish, even from minimal details, fake arrays from genuine products.
