Genuine OKI Consumables: How to be cautious about counterfeit

OKI is introducing a new hologram label to its Original Consumables packaging


How to be cautious about counterfeit

Counterfeit consumables can be dangerous and are an infringement of intellectual property rights. 
 
Often passed off as genuine consumables, they can threaten personal health and safety, work environments and investment in print devices. 
 
Unlike consumables that are produced by the Original Equipment Manufacturer, many counterfeit products are manufactured under poor conditions with the proceeds from sales linked to organised crime and terrorism.
 
It is illegal to knowingly sell, be in possession of, use or distribute counterfeit imaging supplies.  

To help protect our customers, OKI includes a hologram label on its Original Consumables packaging. 


The label features a number of important security measures that are designed to be beyond the reach of counterfeiters and also provide you with a simple process to check the authenticity of your consumables.

To avoid purchasing counterfeit goods, always buy your OKI Original Consumables from an authorised OKI Reseller. 


If you have any doubts about the integrity of the consumables you have purchased, enter the unique security code shown on the hologram to verify its authenticity:
