Counterfeit Avoidance

Does Australia have a Counterfeit Problem?

AA&S (Australia) has become the Australian affiliate for the international Avoid Counterfeits Coalition (ACC) and the Hazardous Substance Safe Coalition (HSSC). Work is currently underway to establish the ACC and HSSC in Australia as part of the international non-profit coalitions which are jointly responding to this global problem. Please see the linked websites which are currently under development.

AA&S (Australia) is also proud to be a sponsor for the "People to People - Working Together for your Safety" Radio Show on Voice America. This show promotes international awareness of Counterfeits and Hazardous Substances, and is hosted each week by Stan Salot Jnr. I have been privileged to have been a guest speaker on the show, representing Australia's counterfeit situation.

Notwithstanding Australia's prowess in the past for identifying and responding to bogus parts issues, the current severity of this problem should not be underestimated.

I thank you in anticipation of your ongoing interest and involvement.

Richard Gauntlett
Chairman, AA&S (Australia)
