Counterfeit clothing a major problem in South Africa
24
Dec '17
The South African Revenue Service (SARS) seized more than ZAR 97-million worth of fake clothing in its crackdown against illegal clothing and textile imports in 2017. About 75 000 counterfeit shoes were also confiscated. The country’s clothing and textile sector is tremendously hit by illegal import of counterfeit goods, according to Customs Investigations.

The import of counterfeit clothing and textiles and other infringements, including under-declaration and misclassification, is a massive problem in South Africa. Therefore‚ the customs department is also focusing on plugging the leaks at non-designated border posts, a South African newspaper quoted a senior customs official as saying.

Several factories closed down in the last few years due to the proliferation of cheap legitimate imports‚ as well as the illegal imports of second-hand clothes and counterfeit clothes and shoes‚ particularly from Asia. (DS)
