About us

What we do

The Imaging Consumables Coalition of Europe, Middle East and Africa (ICCE) is a non-profit making association with ten members: Brother, Canon, Epson, Hewlett-Packard, Kyocera, Lexmark, OKI, Ricoh, Samsung and Xerox.

 

ICCE was formed in 1997 as a direct response to the increase in counterfeit imaging consumables across the regions of Europe, Middle East and Africa. Imaging consumables include such products as toner and ink cartridges and ribbons.

 

Initially created as an industry association with a focus on education, lobbying, information exchange and awareness, it has since developed to include coordinating the role of receiving and processing intelligence information on counterfeiters, ​and initiating joint industry raids and enforcement activities and helping its members to targeting of counterfeiters through the criminal and civil courts.

ICCE works closely with its sister organisation in the United States, the ISC (Imaging Supplies Coalition). For more information about ISC's members and their activities please go to their website www.isc-inc.org.

The imaging consumables industry is currently threatened by a €1.6 billion market in counterfeit imaging supplies which are often dangerous, environmentally unfriendly and which cheat consumers of the quality they are entitled to expect from branded consumables.

 

Legitimate manufacturers are increasingly embroiled in legal actions against manufacturers and distributors/resellers of these fraudulent imaging supplies. 

 

More than 100,000 jobs in Europe depend on the imaging supplies industry and as counterfeits use economic volatility and low price to increase their customer base; those jobs are increasingly under threat.

Counterfeit Ink Cartridges

Always be vigilant and consider the possibility of counterfeit cartridges. If there is any doubt, check directly with the manufacturer or contact ICCE to report your suspicions. 

 

Remember: if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. We would always advise to be very careful when buying from anyone who is not your standard supplier or when you are being offered reduced price products
