  • Anticounterfeiting Resources: Recordation Tools for Brand Owners

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    A valuable anticounterfeiting tool is customs recordation systems. INTA believes that these systems are a basic need for customs officials to easily identify counterfeit goods. The ability to record trademark rights, methods of identification of genuine goods, and contact information of the brand owners will make it easier for customs officials to work with the private industry to protect their borders.

    This webcast will highlight two such tools to get your brand’s information to the most officials possible through the World Customs Organization’s (WCO) global Interface Public-Members (IPM) platform and the European Union Intellectual Property Office’s (EUIPO) regional Enforcement Database (EDB).

    The Interface Public-Members (IPM) platform is WCO’s web and mobile platform allowing rights holders to share relevant product information and the only global security solution gateway allowing customs officers to verify the authenticity of products online. IPM allows brands operational data to be communicated directly to customs officers, facilitating the identification of counterfeit goods.

    The IPM service was quite expensive in the past, but now is more affordable for rights holders. A special discount will also be given to INTA members. WCO’s Bob Peeters will tell you more about the IPM tool and give you more information about the discount.

    Developed and run by the EUIPO, the EDB contains information on products that have been granted an intellectual property right, like a registered trade mark or design. Police and customs officials of the 28 Member States can access this tool to view information and product details, making it easier for them to identify counterfeits and take action.

    Any IP right owner can be part of the EDB; you just need to enter information about your products into the database and connect it to your IP rights. The EDB is free for all trademark owners. EUIPO’s Blanca Arteche will show how EDB works and why every trademark owner should participate.
