“The counterfeits do not meet the quality standards”

– KAS prevents the sale of counterfeit goods. In this way, it supports honest entrepreneurs, cares for the rights of creators and protects consumers. Counterfeits do not meet quality standards and can be dangerous to the health of users. Examples include cosmetics and medicines made of unknown ingredients and toys with concentrations of phthalates exceeding the permissible standards – added Justyna Pasieczyńska.
