New Customs Regulation for seizing counterfeit goods

The current IPR Regulation will be replaced on the 1st of January 2014 by Council Regulation No. 608 of 2013.

This new Regulation will simplify the process where the Customs Authorities intervene in suspected cases of counterfeit goods, namely from January 2014 a new application form must be used for “applications for action” while there will be no requirement in relation to small consignments for the Customs Authorities to contact the rights holder to ascertain the status of goods.
