When we decided to launch I.T.T.A (ALCCI) to sensitize businesses and the public sector on the damages caused by this scourge, only a few international bodies had addressed it, like the World Customs Organisation, the O.E.C.D, the World Economic Forum in Davos, Interpol and Europol. In France, governmental authorities have not yet recognised this subject fully and enterprises are still in a reactive stance regarding it. The situation has somewhat changed lately. Studies have eased the understanding of the threat, entailing that people who have to know about it to act are alarmed. It is only a fledgling movement that I.T.T.A wants to bolster so that Illicit Trade be reined in, In France as abroad. Alain Juillet, Hervé Pierre, Dominique Lapprand

Welcome to the Illicit Trade Tackling Association, I.T.T.A (ALCCI in French, Association de Lutte Contre le Commerce Illicite)

The Illicit Trade Tackling Association targets sustaining the fight against all forms of public illicit trade of goods in violation of laws and regulation, be it on hygiene, public health, security or safety, or social/natural environment. Illicit Trade also regards stolen goods, counterfeits, contraband, frauds or products sold or bought in contradiction of legal/commercial usage.

According to its by-laws, I.T.T.A is open to all businesses concerned by illicit trade and to professional associations addressing this issue. Individuals can also adhere as full members provided they have shown their commitment and expertise in this domain one way or another. Finally, public sector agents from departments involved in this topic can be admitted as “associated members”.

I.T.T.A intends to be a meeting place for all its members, an observatory on the subject, a reliable source of information and a laboratory to explore and assess all possible instruments able to tackle illicit trade.

I.T.T.A therefore aims at helping businesses and their associates by offering them a comprehensive and transverse approach on illicit trade. For so doing, it will broadly use its extended network, domestically and abroad (institutions, professional groups, universities, governmental organisations and NGO’s, various think tanks). Its vocation is also representing its members near international bodies to insert itself in the dynamic momentum taking place on this topic.

Through meetings, studies and information sharing, it will allow a mutualisation and coordination of needed action to combat illicit trade.
