    • a project which consolidates producers of original products and official distributors:
    When BMF Research employees receive a complaint about counterfeit goods, they try to contact the right owner, that is, in most case the producer of the original product. If the producer of the original product is interested in eliminating counterfeit goods, then he or his representative by proxy can submit an application to the law enforcement bodies against the distributor/producer of counterfeit goods.
