As part of a crack down on fake cosmetics, the Dubai Economic Department has raided four warehouses in the last week, discovering more than three million counterfeit products, including some 700,000 copycat perfumes, and a batch of falsified MAC make-up, according to a report published by Gulf News.

“The Dubai Economic Department is committed to translating the directives and vision of the Government of Dubai to promote economic activity. Combatting commercial fraud and protecting goods and services against duplicating their brand or logo are part of the strategic objective of Dubai’s Economy to improve confidence among businesses and investors and enhance overall competitiveness in Dubai,” Ibrahim Behzad, Director of Intellectual Property Rights Protection in the Commercial Compliance & Consumer Protection unit told Gulf News.

“We work closely with global brands to train our inspectors in identifying counterfeits and we update trademark owners on local developments in combatting counterfeiting,” he continued.
