Any goods that are found to be fake are destroyed.
Most fake goods are coming through the backdoor of Europe, Eastern European countries.
Once cleared by dubious methods the goods are classed as free circulation / homeuse goods and can move freely throughout the EU unless they are restricted/banned by a member state - in this case they can move freely in member states where not banned.
Another method is using Low bulk value declaration directly into the UK.
Always makes me chuckle when visiting special EU territories such as the Canary islands - loads of fake goods being sold by our EU partners!
