Tax stamp solutions

The global trade in counterfeit and smuggled excisable products, such as tobacco, has an estimated value of US$40–50 billion dollars. The effects on industries and the businesses that operate within them can be devastating, as well as causing huge losses in tax revenue to governments.

OpSec’s programs around the world are proven to successfully combat this illicit trade, protect government revenues and enable our clients to meet their obligations under the FCTC ITP Protocol.

OpSec achieves this by combining banknote-level security features with our proven digital track and trace technology.
