Counterfeit Pharmaceuticals do not only provoke immense economic damage to pharmaceutical companies but are a great risk to the public. The increasing threat calls for immediate action against counterfeit medicines. Steps must be taken by governmental and international authorities as well as by every single affected pharmaceutical company. Counterfeit APIs and medicines pose a growing threat to patients worldwide, with increasing numbers in Europe and the USA. Customs all over the world find more and more illegally produced drugs. Moreover, drugs are increasingly sold via the Internet making it much easier to put counterfeits into circulation. http://www.companyprofilesandconferences.com/seminars-conferences/Pharma-Anti-Counterfeiting-2012.html
Counterfeiting of drugs and medical devices cost the pharmaceutical and medical device industry billions of dollars annually in lost revenues. This loss is amplified by the serious threats fake drugs pose to the health and safety of consumers. Directing your organization toward an successful brand protection system can be a daunting task given the sophistication of counterfeiters and the difficulty in tracking and prosecuting perpetrators. This in-depth workshop will teach you how to ensure you have a solid counterfeit program and help you to gain a better understanding of how to develop an efficient brand protection program. It is estimated that counterfeiting is a $600 billion a year problem. In fact, itâ€™s a problem that has grown over 10,000% in the past two decades, in part fuelled by CONSUMER DEMAND. The real truth is people who purchase counterfeit merchandise risk funding nefarious activities, contributing to unemployment, creating budget deficits and compromising the future of this country in the global economy.
