Italian police seized 82 tonnes of counterfeit cigarettes and packaging mimicking several top brands.
Requirements to register businesses and products could make it harder for fraudsters to operate, says CEO Kate Wang.
11 arrests were made, and more than 2.5 tonnes of counterfeit cigarettes were seized, worth about €1.25m.
The operation led to the arrests of 14 people suspected of supplying illegal cigarettes to the black market in France and the UK.
