Observing the rise in the number of counterfeit products in the market Dubai Municipality with the help of Stillman’s Overseas Inc will be conducting a series of investigations.

By the coming fortnight fake goods will be seized in Dubai.  Raids will be conducted in the wake of re-selling of counterfeit Stillman’s branded products.

Naseem Mohammed Rafee, Head of Consumer Products Safety, Dubai Municipality said, “Original Stillman’s products are registered with Dubai Municipality and we have been made aware of the substandard counterfeit products being imported into the country.

We are now working with Stillman’s Overseas Inc. to conduct raids against counterfeit product wholesalers and take the products off the shelves.”

Apart from the fake products goods, regulators will be performing product compliance checks in line with product safety parameters to which original Stillman’s products have been tested and have thus been duly registered with Dubai Municipality.

“Customer safety is important to us and unauthorized products do not meet our standards,” said Rafee

The creams have also been tested by SGS France Consumer Testing Laboratory.

Those convicted of infringement will have to pay Stillman’s Overseas Inc. a huge amount as compensation.

A Abraham at the law firm Galadari & Associates said, “We have launched a rigorous legal campaign against infringers’ of our client Company’s trademark in UAE that has resulted in extensive monetary losses to them.  The newly refined Intellectual Property laws of the UAE along with amendments to penalties including jail time for perpetrators are in our favor coupled with the UAE government’s overall initiative towards an anti-counterfeit campaign. ”
