Hertfordshire Trading Standards led an operation at a market in Bovingdon market recently which saw a large amount of counterfeit goods seized.

Herts Police and brand representatives co-ordinated by the Anti-Counterfeiting Group, we were able to seize a goods including clothing, footwear, and electronics.

Hertfordshire County Council (HCC), whose commercial standards department is responsible for seizing goods from several stalls, reports that investigations are underway.

Andrew Butler, director of regulatory services, community protection, HCC: “I am pleased t­o be able to confirm that a planned, anti-counterfeiting operation was successfully carried out by our Trading Standards team, with support from partners including the police and the Anti-Counterfeiting Group (ACG), following complaints about the selling of counterfeit goods at Bovingdon Market. Further action will be taken as appropriate following the investigation.

“We consider this operation a huge success as it not only removed counterfeit goods from the open market, but due to our presence in the market – and the ongoing investigations into those found selling counterfeit items – will also hopefully deter others from undertaking similar action.”
