Illicit & Unrecorded Alcohol
APISWA is committed to working with stakeholders to raise awareness of the detrimental impacts of illicit and unrecorded alcohol. These products can seriously harm consumer health and safety, government revenues and the brand reputation of legitimate alcohol producers.
Furthermore, illicit trade undermines the fulfilment of the Sustainable Development Goals promoted by the United Nations. We advocate for the adoption of non-discriminatory, evidence-based tax and regulatory measures to curb illicit and unrecorded alcohol.
