Customs authority actions

The customs authorities offer the facility to monitor the borders of Europe for alleged imitation products or illegal copies. The customs authorities do this at their own initiative or at the request of a holder of an intellectual property right (such as a patent, trademark or design right or copyright). The holder can submit a request to the customs authorities to take action against imitation products and illegal copies of this type. This request includes information to help the customs authorities find products and copies of this type. As a result, the customs authorities know what to look out for, and you are not dependent on their initiative. Experience shows that the chances of arrest are significantly increased by the submission of a well-documented request.

Arnold + Siedsma relieves you of the concern of customs authority requests and the instigation and follow-up of the subsequent required legal actions.
