Deputy Director Kumar Kibble of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Department of Homeland Security delivered the keynote address. In his presentation, he highlighted a few recent operations:

•In 2010, a multi-day surge operation called "Operation Mercury" - more than 17,000 mail express parcels contained pharmaceuticals and more than 1,300 were illicit drugs.

•In 2011, 12 enforcement surges called "Operation Apothecary," which evaluated international mail facilities and land borders. There were738 seizures and the examination of 7,000 parcels. Hundreds of criminals were prosecuted.

•For the past four years, Operation Pangea has targeted websites selling counterfeit medications internationally. ICE and FDA managed the process for the U.S.

Said Kibble, "All of this reinforces the global threat of counterfeit medication. A united, coordinated and aggressive stance against counterfeiters shows the results through operations like Mercury, Pangea and Apothecary."
