AGIP Helps Clients Protect their Rights through Recordation with China Customs


BEIJING - Customs enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) in China refers to the measures taken by Chinese Customs according to the law preventing the import and export of infringing goods. Chinese Customs comprise the General Administration of Customs of China (GACC) and local customs offices nationwide. There are two modes of protection, namely “protection on request” and “protection ex officio”. Recently, nine of China’s authorities including the Supreme People’s Court and the State Administration for Market Regulation jointly released the Opinions on Strengthening the Destruction of Infringing and Counterfeit Goods.

The Opinions address long-standing issues regarding the destruction of confiscated goods and counterfeits which infringe Intellectual Property Rights by disposing of the goods in accordance with laws and regulations, to prevent the return of the goods to the marketplace; and disposing of the goods in a harmless manner, to prevent pollution during the destruction process and strictly prohibit any re-circulation of the goods.

In this regard, Abu-Ghazaleh Intellectual Property (AGIP) helps clients record their Intellectual Property Rights with Chinese Customs, as the first frontier in the fight against counterfeiting and infringement. Once a trademark is recorded with Chinese Customs, the entrance of infringing products will be closely controlled and the owners will be immediately notified of any such incidents.
