Direzione Generale

The Directorate-General for the Fight against Counterfeiting - UIBM feels that the combined action of all the subjects involved - either directly or indirectly - in the fight against counterfeiting is an essential tool to reach its strategic objectives.

This is because the areas of intervention of the Directorate require a close relationship with the territory and local, national and international organisations to counter such an increasing¹ phenomenon and promote the Industrial Property system.

The Legislative Decree 10 February 2005 - the so-called Industrial Property Code - entrusts the Directorate-General for the Fight against Counterfeiting - UIBM with the task of promoting the use of Industrial Property to citizens, SMEs and less developed regions.

In addition, the Code states that the Directorate has the authority to stipulate conventions and protocols with regions, chambers of commerce and public and private bodies with the aim of carrying out its tasks.

All protocols and conventions listed below are the starting point of bigger projects that involve citizens, universities and the research world, enterprises and the productive fabric.
