AGIP Provides IP Rights Recordation Service with the Algerian Customs


ALGIERS – Abu-Ghazaleh Intellectual Property (AGIP) as the leading global IP firm providing Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) protection, provides a new service in Algeria tightening trademarks’ owners protection against the unauthorized importation of goods bearing trademarks or logos identical or similar to their trademarks.

Recordation with the Directorate General of Customs in Algeria is one of the most effective procedures for enforcing IPRs in Algeria. As a prerequisite, trademarks’ owners have to register their trademarks with Algeria Trademark Office under the authority of Algerian Ministry of Industry first and then record the trademarks with the Directorate General of Customs.
Upon this recordation, the Customs officials across all Algerian Customs border points shall have the right to stop and seize any goods found to bear similar or identical trademark(s) to the original ones. 

The recordation procedures are very simple, and AGIP helps trademarks’ owners maximize their protection at the borders. To record your IPRs through AGIP, you need to submit the following required documents:
- Engagement (in French Language) to be dated, signed and stamped by the client and legalized by the Algerian Embassy.
- POA to be dated, signed and stamped by the client and legalized by the Algerian Embassy.
- Copy of the certificate of registration of the trademark. 
- Minimum of 70 photos of the products and their packaging with all description (weight, length, width, technical data sheet)
