BEUK removes the administrative burden from brand owners by channeling all Law Enforcement; Police, Customs and unique to the UK, Trading Standards, queries through our dedicated team.
This is advantageous to all parties creating a single point of contact with one email address, physical address and telephone number for all referred matters. Depending on our level of engagement for a brand we draft both expert and continuity witness statements for both public and private prosecutions that evidence the authenticity of our client’s products.
BEUK also act as European custom seizure representatives for numerous brands. Our service includes; completing an intelligence database detailing importer and exporter contact information, expert product identification and analysis, liaison with customers and adhering to any necessary written correspondence. An additional service that we offer is having customs destroy the illicit goods and process the invoice on the brands behalf.
Where Customs Officers reach out for a quick declaration as to whether an item is counterfeit or not and we can respond through virtual analysis (photographs). Where a physical examination of a product is required and/or a witness statement in order for them to proceed with a case.
