Support for crackdown on Customs clearance stage

What is Customs Control Enforcement Support?

  • This is an activity that supports the detection of goods infringing on intellectual property rights at 50 customs clearance sites across the country. In accordance with the customs' request, the customs conducts an appraisal of goods that are reasonably suspected of infringing on intellectual property rights in the course of import or export customs clearance.

How to do work

  • When customs requests an assessment by specifying a target item, TIPA notifies the intellectual property right holder, and discusses whether the intellectual property right person performs it directly or has TIPA act on his/her behalf.
  • If the intellectual property right person requests TIPA on behalf of the person, the authenticity test is performed. Result Customs notification, etc.
