AACS is grateful for any information about suspected counterfeiting of its members' branded spirits. AACS will read all the reports it receives and act appropriately. This may include passing the information to the relevant law enforcement agency where required by law to do so or where in AACS's judgement this is the best course of action. For practical reasons, AACS may not be able to respond directly to or enter into correspondence with everyone submitting a report. AACS reserves the right not to respond and not to provide information that in AACS's judgement would be detrimental to its purpose and aims, for example information that may be of advantage to the counterfeiters, including trade secrets, know-how or other commercially sensitive information relating to AACS and its members.
