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


The EUIPO via the Observatory organised on 15 January an information and working meeting with online marketplaces, pharmaceutical companies and law enforcement authorities.

This online event provided an opportunity to share and exchange experiences and knowledge among the various players in order to provide an effective and proactive response to fight against possible counterfeit and dangerous vaccines that could appear on the market in the coming months.

The event was the third 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). These events will run until March 2021.
