The European Office Police (EUROPOL) and ETICS, the European Testing Inspection and Certification System sign MOU Tuesday 12 July 2016, The Hague.

EUROPOL and ETICS announced today that they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which sets out the role of both organisations and how they will work together in the future to achieve their goals. 

The MOU will facilitate contact and discussion on matters of common interest and will provide a framework for future co-operation. It will be reviewed at least every two years to ensure it is relevant and reflects developments in the sector. 

For both EUROPOL and ETICS, this is an important step forward to engage in cross-sector collaboration in the area of counterfeiting and inform each other on programmes of potential interest in order to identify possibilities for joint activities and mutual contribution.

Pierre de Ruvo, Secretary General & CEO ETICS, said: “This is an enormously positive development for ETICS, and we see this partnership as key in a number of strategic aspects to fight counterfeiting of consumer goods that impact health and safety of consumers."
