Counterfeiting becomes a global problem in the context that it covers almost all the categories of products: from soap, to clothing and even drugs, affecting equally the producers of the original products, consumers, and the society in its whole. The methods to detect forgery differ from a group of products to another, in some cases being extremely expensive and laborious, because of the imitations extremely similar with the original products[1]. In the fight for the elimination from the market of products that can affect life, health and security of consumers, and which harm at the same time their economical interest, it is needed the conjugate effort of authorities, producers and consumers. The need to ensure an efficient surveillence on European and national markets, grows with the diversification and the increase of the number of products and services came from all over the world. The consumers need exact information, a transparent market and trust based on an efficient protection and solid rights.
