Have you heard of the “Fight Fake Products” Initiative?


Steel producers met in December of 2015 to form a group and band together to fight fake products. Counterfeiting and forgery are becoming big problems in the steel industry. The production of these materials is a risk to the environment, as they are fabricated of inferior material and can fail during use and cause damage to the environment.

The Fight Fake Products initiative unites several companies as one voice in an effort to stop counterfeiting and forgery in the steel industry.

Havocscope, a website that deems themselves “a sort of Consumer Report for the underworld” estimates total worldwide counterfeit goods to be valued at $653.77 Billion. The United States tops this list, therefore experiencing the greatest loss by a landslide at $225 Billion. The second greatest loss is by Mexico at $75 Million.
