Awareness session on counterfeits - Vaccines during the COVID-19 pandemic


The EUIPO via the Observatory organised on 13 January, an information and working meeting with pharmaceutical companies and law enforcement authorities.

This online event further strengthened the cooperation between pharmaceutical companies and law enforcement authorities, provided them with advice and information on COVID-19 vaccines, and helped them to fight effectively against possible counterfeit and dangerous vaccines that may appear on the market in the coming months.

The event was the second in a series of joint pre-operational training sessions that the Observatory and its usual institutional partners –OLAF, European Commission and Europol– organised for law enforcement authorities (market surveillance authorities, police and customs officers). These events will take place until March 2021.
