Cracking Down on Counterfeiting through Traceability
Distributing fake, expired, or defective products can be detrimental to a company’s reputation and credibility. Counterfeiting hits many industries hard, including the AV, pharmaceutical, retail, and electronics sectors, so it is essential for companies to continue to strengthen their anti-counterfeiting practices.
Many manufacturers are beginning to implement anti-counterfeiting practices to increase their supply chain visibility through traceability technology. There are many ways to prevent counterfeiting through track-and-trace technology, including using RFID tags, QR or LiveQR codes, and at a minimum adding unique identification codes in order to identify products at the item level, rather than at the batch level. By assigning a unique identifier to an individual item, companies are able to connect product information exchanged between sellers to the physical products in their supply chains.
