DUBAI:  Al-Futtaim Toyota, in partnership with UAE government authorities, has confiscated more than 453,456 counterfeit Toyota parts valued at Dh20.68 million (US$5.63 million) last year. A total of 26 raids on counterfeit car part dealers took place in 2018 across the country mainly in Dubai, Al Ain, Umm Al Quwain, Sharjah, and Ajman.

The majority of items were serviceable goods such as oil filters, fuel filters, and spark plugs, said Al-Futtaim Toyota in a media advisory.

Al- Futtaim Toyota trained a total of 258 Economic Department Field Inspectors across the UAE in 2018 to increase their expertise in identifying counterfeit parts. These officials were also provided with the necessary tools to educate consumers about the importance of using genuine parts.

Commenting on the raids, Saud Abbasi, Managing Director of Al-Futtaim-Toyota, said as “it can be difficult for some of our customers to differentiate between genuine and fake car parts, we have an important role to play in training the official inspectors to ensure our customers’ safety.”

“I would like to express my gratitude to our Brand Protection team and the UAE government officials from the local Economic Departments and local Police for their combined efforts that made the raids campaigns so successful,” he added.
