What are London Trading Standards doing?

Fakes

Working towards a fake free London

London Trading Standards works closely with many partners to try and ensure London is a fake-free, fair and safe trading environment, these include:

Trading standards carry out overt and covert inspections of physical premises and online sites and have the power to seize any goods, documents or other items required as evidence.

The prosecution of offences under trade marks and copyright legislation, along with fraud and money laundering laws is routine. Proceeds of crime confiscation proceedings can also be instigated.

To find out more about the fight against fakes visit the Anti-Counterfeiting Group website.

If you wish to report anyone selling counterfeit goods you can tell Trading Standards in confidence using our online form or report them using the Crimestoppers service - telephone 0800 555 111.
