BORDER MEASURES – CUSTOMS

We are highly concerned in protecting our client’s trademarks and copyrights with the Concerned Customs Authorities in the gulf regions to combat commercial fraud and counterfeiting products in the GCC.

Advantages of Customs recordal:

The recordal with Customs renders the rights holders entitled to:

  • receive immediate notifications from the various Customs ports on incoming suspected shipments bearing the protected IP rights;
  • file confirmation on the status and nature of the shipment and request release or genuine shipments and destruction of counterfeit and unauthorized shipments;
  • place requests for customs watch on certain shipments (defined by trademark, source, route of shipping, etc.)
