HA NOI (Biz Hub) — The Ministry of Industry and Trade's Trade Promotion Department on Thursday signed a co-operation agreement with Viet Nam Products Verifying Corporation (VNPV) to apply SMS product verifying stamps to eliminate counterfeit goods.

The stamp is expected to help enterprises manage its agent network, protect their brand names and copyrights.

It also assures buyers that they are purchasing genuine brand name products. Each verifying stamp has a secret code printed by advanced technology – which can not be forged.

The buyers can make sure they are buying the real thing by sending the code numbers on the stamp to switchboard number 1127.

The stamps are a solution researched and developed by VNPV, based on Government guidelines to support work on preventing counterfeit goods and commercial fraud. — VNS
