Abstract: This report presents the results of a review of the economic literature about the problem of Difference in Composition of Seemingly Identical Branded Product (DC-SIP). The problem is also referred to as dual quality. Academic literature about DC-SIP is almost non-existent. Consequently, this report focuses on contributions that are indirectly related to the topic and yet are able to foster an understanding of the economic principles of DC-SIP. The report provides a conceptual analysis in order to explain the rationale for brand owners to use DC-SIP practices and policy related issues; it does not bring empirical evidence as it is not available in the literature.
