There are philosophers believing that a fake is the highest recognition.
We do not believe in this!

IMCI has been actively investigating and pursuing individuals and entities that pass off fraudulent CE certificates showing the IMCI name. The following persons or companies have at least distributed fraudulent (forged) certificates. These entities are dealers and/or transporters of the craft or components, and may or may not be the originators of the faked documents. IMCI will continue its longstanding policy to inform the EU Market Surveillance Authorities immediately if it discovers fraudulent certificates on the market in order to protect the CE program as well as unwitting consumers. In addition, we encourage all Notified Bodies, for their own sake, to review this webpage from time to time or to sign up for the IMCI Website Monitor for a complete and up-to-date list of fraudulent distributors. Should a person or company feel to be listed here wrongly we ask politely to give us short notice.

ATTENTION:
All IMCI certificates are signed by either Lars Granholm (only until end of 1999)  Ulrich Heinemann (not earlier than beginning of 2000) or Dr. Udo Wolff (since September 2006). Please be aware that there are no other signatures!
All IMCI certificates are signed;
There are no certificates in modules "Aa" or "B" which show a Hull ID or CIN (earlier called: HIN);
Notified Bodies do not issue module "A" certificates;
IMCI does not use a stamp showing "APPROVED CE I.M.C.I. 0609";
IMCI certificate paper has a big watermark in the middle and numerous very small ones covering the entire certificate surface;
Craft Identification Numbers (CIN) always have 14 digits (example: NL-HXAB7A33G606). The first two digits are always letters being the country code. This is separated by a hyphen from the rest of the entire number. The last 3 digits are always numbers and the last but four digit is always a letter.
