Trademarks Related Services
Customs have a crucial role to play in international trade, especially in the protection of intellectual property rights. The TRIPS Agreement, which stands for the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights, includes standards for the provision, scope, and use of intellectual property rights, such as copyright, trademarks, geographical indications, and industrial designs. This agreement mandates member states to implement various general obligations to enforce intellectual property rights, including necessary procedures to ensure their enforcement and the imposition of rapid and deterrent penalties against any infringement. However, these penalties should not hinder legitimate trade and must have safeguards against misuse.
One of the significant measures to enforce intellectual property rights is “border measures and the protection of intellectual property rights at the customs.” The key procedures involved in this measure are:
- Customs authorities can stop the release of goods.
- Guarantees or equivalent guarantees should be provided.
- The right to inspect and obtain information.
- Actions can be taken without request.
- Penalties can be imposed.
