The National Directory to Combat Counterfeiting is a Project created and developed by the National Council to Combat Piracy - CNCP. Project concept and development had the support of INPI - Brazilian Trademark and Patent Office, which became responsible for the Directory´s management and maintenance at the INPI website.
The Directory´s goal is make easier for public authorities to contact the trademark representatives who work with piracy combat and who can immediately help the authorities in the identification of counterfeit products, reports, provision of information about genuine products and their routes, among other provisions.
The Directory is working since March, 2014 and already has information about 100 companies that together are responsible for 9.755 registered trademarks, according to information divulged by the INPI: http://www.inpi.gov.br/images/docs/programa_4_-_diretorio_fev_2015.pdf.
