Illegal Import Investigations
We take cognizant of importers of illegal goods who would sell anything to make a profit in utter disregard to consumer safety and the law. We carry out investigations for government bodies and private companies by identifying the supply chain, gather evidence to expose the illegal importers and trap purchase to obtain samples to use as evidence.
Parallel Import Investigations
Parallel imports, commonly referred to as “grey goods” are often genuine products that have been brought into a market by a rights holder in one territory and subsequently sold to a third party in a different territory without the consent of the original rights holder.
At Infotesters, we identify the chain from the seller to the reseller, carry out trap purchases to collect samples, conduct market surveys to identify the counterfeiting stock and identify the counterfeit or infringed products on the internet. Infotesters Limited has proven able to provide comprehensive advice and assistance in each of these areas. We approach every investigation from a team assignment perspective which gives us the ability to conduct cost effective and expedient investigations
