World Anti-Counterfeiting Day 2016 is now in its eighteenth year and was established by the GACG Network members to enable the organisation of local, national and regional events under the umbrella of an international campaign which could focus on the particular problems of counterfeiting and piracy in the countries or regions involved.  The WAC Day events are usually held on the same day in summer each year but are individually organised by the national or regional associations themselves who may or may not take up themes suggested by the GACG or being used by other associations. 

World Anti-Counterfeiting Day 2016: WEDNESDAY 8th JUNE

The theme for the main event in Paris will be 'Fakes in the sports industries' (to coincide with the EURO 2016 football) but other events will have other themes under the main heading of 'Anti-Counterfeiting and the campaign against the trade in fakes.'
