HP and the Emirati authorities have shut down large-scale counterfeiting facilities and seized over 207,000 illicit items in a significant operation.

With the help of HP partners, the Emirati officials successfully dismantled multiple major counterfeiting schemes designed to assemble and distribute illegal HP printer cartridges in the UAE market.

The authorities conducted three major raids between December 2020 and April 2021 on several large-scale counterfeiting storage facilities in the Emirates of Dubai and Ajman. The resulting seizures saw local officials confiscate over 207,000 illicit items from various storage sites, preventing their unlawful sale within the UAE.

Vishnu Taimni, Vice-President and Managing Director of Middle East, Turkey and East Africa at HP, commented: “Counterfeiting is an illegal activity that not only negatively impacts the businesses of resellers and distributors, but also affects the overall product experience for consumers.”

“We’re honoured by our longstanding partnership with Emirati officials and the exceptional success of our Anti-Counterfeiting and Fraud Programme in safeguarding our customers from the illegal sale of fraudulent HP products and remain committed to protect our customers from unlawful activities.”

According to HP, approximately 12 million counterfeits and components have been seized by local authorities across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) over the last five years. The company has also undertaken over 4,500 audits and inspections (CPPAs and CDIs) of partners’ stocks or suspicious deliveries for customers.
