Tim Driscoll to Present Industry Webinar for Quarantining Illicit Tobacco During COVID-19

     |     

ADDISON, Texas, July 20, 2020 – Authentix®, the authority in authentication and information services, announced that its Senior Vice President and General Manager of Tax Stamp & Currency, Tim Driscoll, Ph.D., will be presenting an industry webinar titled Quarantining Illicit Tobacco – Tobacco Control through the Lens of COVID-19  on July 23, 2020, at 9:00 AM Central Standard Time.

The webinar, sponsored by the International Tax Stamp Association (ITSA), will focus on the crucial role of tax stamp and traceability programs to boost government finances strained by COVID-19.

Driscoll, a Board Member for ITSA, has played a critical role in expanding the Authentix tax stamp division with the launch of Authentix’s tax stamp program for the Ghana Revenue Authority in March of 2018. Today, Authentix supplies and manages multiple excise tax recovery programs for national governments across the globe and produces in excess of 10 billion stamps annually. Driscoll was also instrumental in the acquisition of UK-based Security Print Solutions (SPS), one of the premier Intergraf certified security printers in the business.  This acquisition expanded Authentix’s print capacity and global delivery capability in addition to opening up new markets in high security documents.

With the effects of COVID-19 felt around the world, government revenues are decreasing while deficits and debt levels continue to increase at alarming rates. Meanwhile illicit trade is reported to have accelerated as counterfeiters and organized crime look to capitalize on the havoc the pandemic has caused.

Tax stamp and traceability programs are a proven solution to protect government revenues and secure supply chains, while also helping to protect public health, brands, and consumer confidence.

Authentix collaborates with government agencies worldwide to identify products avoiding taxation and the primary source of the illicit activity. Our consultative approach and over 25 years of authentication and tax recovery experience enables us to understand and address tax collection challenges amid complex supply chains and uncertain times.

In the webinar, Driscoll shares the elements of a modern tax stamp program and why now may be the right time to introduce or expand current schemes. The webinar is open to the public and registrants can sign up here.

Authentix Partners with Government Clients on Corporate Social Responsibility Initiatives in Africa

     |     

ADDISON, Texas, July 15, 2020 – Authentix®, the authority in authentication solutions, shares positive results of continued client partnerships for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives. Through a long standing commitment to expand resources beyond standard business operations, Authentix has taken lead from its government partners to help deliver a lasting, positive impact on the lives of thousands in many communities in Africa.

According to Authentix’s CEO, Kevin McKenna, “As we continue to focus on CSR initiatives, our approach centers around listening, learning, and planning in close collaboration with leaders of important government agencies such as the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Finance, Energy Regulation Board, and countless others who seek to improve environmental and socioeconomic conditions for their citizens.” Below highlights some of the collaborative programs completed.

Zambia: Clean Water & Sanitation in Petauke
The Zambian government recognized the lack of access to clean and safe water for many in drought stricken rural regions. Through a partnership with the Zambia Energy Regulation Board (ERB), Authentix supported the rehabilitation of 30 water boreholes and the drilling of six new boreholes and pumping equipment in the Petauke district within the Eastern Province of Zambia. Improved outcomes for local citizens included:

  • Over 30,000 people with access to clean and safe drinking water.
  • Reduced the number of non-communicable diseases in the district.
  • Increased school class attendance as children now have nearby access to water sources.
  • Improved sanitation facilities at two schools serving thousands of students.

In this ongoing partnership with the ERB, Authentix is continuing the spirit of CSR in 2020 by working with a consortium of partners rehabilitating more than 200 additional water boreholes in the Petauke district. This project will help vastly improve access to clean and safe drinking water for over 80,000 people in the area.

Ghana: New Technology Laboratory in Kongo Senior Secondary School
The Ghana National Petroleum Authority (NPA) expressed a need to help the Kongo Senior Secondary School, the only high school in the area with over 2,200 students. Authentix collaborated with the NPA to provide the secondary school with 21 new, fully networked computers with Internet access and also enabled the installation of a reference library.

In collaboration with government clients on multiple continents, Authentix has helped make a significant social impact by addressing local needs in health, education, and the environment and will continue to focus available resources for these important CSR projects.
