SINGAPORE, Aug. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reebonz Holding Limited (the “Company” or “Reebonz”; Nasdaq: RBZ), a leading online luxury marketplace and platform in Asia Pacific, announced today that it has received membership to the Association Against Counterfeit Product Distribution (“AACD”), an organization working to prevent and eliminate counterfeit and illegal goods. Reebonz is the first overseas company to join the AACD and is applicable to products it owns.
The AACD is an industry group in Japan that was launched in April 1998 with the aim of preventing and eliminating the distribution of "counterfeit goods" and "illegal goods". The AACD believes that the protection of intellectual property rights in the consumer market is of paramount importance. The organization’s aim is to create a sound and reliable market in which consumers can safely purchase genuine branded products by preventing the distribution of counterfeit and fraudulent products, or otherwise eliminating such products, from the market. Member companies conduct their respective businesses in compliance with strict criteria for the handling of products, which the AACD has set forth independently.
Samuel Lim, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Reebonz, commented, “We are extremely excited to be a part of the AACD and are proud to have successfully met their rigorous criteria. This membership is a strong testament to our commitment to providing a trusted platform, where consumers can buy and sell new and pre-owned luxury products with ease. Our new Sell Back Guarantee and Sell Catalog strategies have been important to our development, and we plan to continue to expand our offerings to make it ever easier for people to safely buy the best new and pre-owned products.”
