The OEM has been collaborating with local authorities to put a stop to the counterfeiting trade of HP branded printer cartridges.

As EABW reports, in August this year a massive raid was conducted by Ugandan authorities which put a stop to the activities of “two large scale retailers of counterfeit HP print cartridges.”

A number of locations were included in the raid, among them “a hidden manufacturing site for fakes” and various outlet stores. Over 18,000 counterfeit cartridges were confiscated during the course of the proceedings.

“HP commends the cooperation and swift action of Ugandan officials and their determination to apprehend and prosecute counterfeiters who break the law. We are proud of our continued work to bring counterfeiters to justice, not only in Africa but throughout the world,” said Glenn Jones, Global Anti-Counterfeiting Program Investigations & Enforcement Operations Manager, HP. “Through our unwavering efforts and commitment to removing counterfeit products from the market, we continue to focus on the protection of our customers through our Anti-Counterfeiting and Fraud Programme.”

Over the last few years, HP has become increasingly proactive in its battle against counterfeiting, supporting local authorities in the Middle East, Europe and Africa, conducting thousands of inspections and audits, and rolling out its Anti-Counterfeiting and Fraud programme which “educates its customers and partners to be vigilant against fake printing supplies”.
