Over 450,000 counterfeit cartridges seized in UAE

January 31, 2019

Working together, HP and UAE authorities have confiscated “significant volumes” of illicit HP-branded counterfeits through a series of successful raids.

As tahawultech reports, between July and December 2018 officials in the UAE – in collaboration with HP – conducted raids on “a number of clandestine workshops and private residences”, both in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

During these raids they discovered and confiscated a “significant” number of counterfeit cartridges, with a total of over 450,000 products being seized during that time frame.

The manufacture and sale of such counterfeits can cause a variety of problems, including damage to consumers’ printers in terms of both performance and reliability. By contrast, HP’s products have been designed to meet “strict quality and reliability standards” and are tested accordingly.

“HP is proud of our continued partnership with UAE authorities, delivering one of our most successful years to date in apprehending and prosecuting counterfeiters who break the law,” said Mathew Thomas, Managing Director, Middle East, Turkey and East Africa, HP. “Our unwavering efforts and commitment to removing counterfeit products from the market has delivered this outstanding result and is a true testament to the success of our Anti-Counterfeiting and Fraud Programme.”
