Market Investigations (Anti-Fraud Activities)
We advise performing market investigations in certain locations to detect the market availability of counterfeit/ imitation products.
Esfor Trade begins the work by holding an informative meeting regarding the counterfeited products, features of such products and their production, distribution and sales locations. After this step, Esfor Trade carries out the investigations as agreed. The investigations can be performed in one or more provinces, regions or countries according to the needs or requirements of the client.
Esfor Trade purchases samples utilizing its own methods or through third parties as required/ requested. All samples are stored appropriately to serve as evidence. We prepare tables including the main information indicating the items that should be handled primarily as well as detailed reports including visual relationship charts created by using a special software that will be valid in courts.
Samples’ cataloging, examinations and analyses are performed by our strategic partner, S4 Intellectual Property Laboratory. This process is carried out to detect samples’ similar/ different features as well as common mistakes to finally locate the number and origins of the sources (producers).
