Reporting counterfeit parts
You can help stop the spread of counterfeit parts.
Soon there will be a new tab on the home page of
the MACS website (www.macsw.org) called “Counterfeit
Product Reports.” This will be on the public section of
the Website that can be viewed by anyone.
If you’re a manufacturer or supplier and you know
your brand name is being counterfeited, tell us what
you know and we’ll post the information. If you’re a
tech and suspect a part or chemical you have purchased
is counterfeit, look for a report on our Website. If you
don’t see one, please file a report yourself.
Provide as much information as you can. Include the
(purported) brand name, a description of the product
and whatever details you have about where and when
it was purchased. If possible, take photos showing the
differences between the counterfeit and known-good
parts and packages. If the part or product was installed,
tell us what happened next: did it perform properly
or did it fail or cause something else to fail? Is there a
characteristic symptom or failure that will help a tech
recognize a counterfeit part has been installed? Be as
thorough as possible.
Make sure you understand the definition of
“counterfeit.” In the auto parts business, it’s not the
product that’s being stolen by counterfeiters, it’s the
brand. Copying a product and selling it under another
name without license from the party that created or holds
the patent on that product is intellectual property theft.
Copying the brand, package, label or trademark that leads
the customer to believe they’re buying a brand-name
product is counterfeiting.
To file a Counterfeit Product Report, contact Jacques
Gordon through e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) and tell us
what you know. We’ll check out the report with the part
manufacturer and post all the additional details we can
find in “Counterfeit Product Reports” on our Website. ❆
