The Autograph Fair Trade Association (AFTAL) was formed by a group of acknowledged autograph dealers, with the intention of stamping out the market in fake items and ensuring that the customer is able to find dealers that they can trust. Inclusion in AFTAL is proof of each dealers commitment and professional competence. Simply put, there is no reason as to why any honest dealer should not become an AFTAL approved dealer, but many reasons why some could never become an AFTAL approved dealer. This non-authentic material is then offered for sale on websites, Internet auctions, and through retail outlets around the UK.
AFTAL work hard to ensure that the Police and Trading Standards are aware of who the forgers behind the fakes are so they can take action. Any memorabilia dealer can apply to join AFTAL, but not all applications are successful.
Some "dealers" know that their ability to tell good from bad would become apparent during our verification process and authentication course, and so choose not be involved in AFTAL.
