FIGHTING COUNTERFEITING FOR YOUR SAFETY
Every day, Legrand uncovers new products that are counterfeits of its products. They are very often dangerous and present risks for property and even people when used. In order to ensure that its products are traced and to guarantee its production quality, Legrand has designed a free tool for checking product
authenticity, based on unique registration numbers: Copytracer.
