Resellers are being warned about the dangers of buying and selling counterfeit imaging supplies in a new short video from ICCE (Imaging Consumables Coalition of Europe, Middle East & Africa).
With up to $3 billion worth of fake imaging supplies – including toners, ink cartridges and ribbons – infiltrating the global supply chain each year, resellers need to be extra vigilant and understand the risks of counterfeits.
The newly launched video explains how fake imaging supply products are not only likely to be sub-standard but can also damage printers and potentially expose a reseller’s customers to dangerous chemicals. Featuring insights from Interpol and the UK’s Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI), the video offers advice on how resellers can help protect their businesses, as well as useful tips on the identification and authentication of imaging supplies.
