Counterfeit certification marks can place the public at the risk of serious injury, illness or death. Consumers who believe they are buying safe, certified items may in fact be getting anything but, when they purchase products with counterfeit certification marks. Responsible manufacturers who make the effort and investment to obtain CSA marks may lose their competitive advantage against competitors who offer counterfeit products. Counterfeit marks also infringe on CSA Group trademarks. CSA Group has adopted a zero tolerance policy toward counterfeits and the misuse of our certification marks. We vigorously defend our trademarks and certification marks around the world. You can help defend the public from hazardous products and maintain the integrity of CSA Group certification marks by reporting suspect counterfeit marks. Stay vigilant. Educate yourself about counterfeit products and these organizations:

  • Canadian Anti-Counterfeiting Network (CACN)
  • International Anti-counterfeiting Coalition (IACC)
  • Certification Industry Against Counterfeiting (CIAC)
