Customs enforcement of intellectual property rights / “EORI” number now required!

In the European Union, Customs enforcement of intellectual property rights is currently governed by Regulation (EU) No. 608/2013; in accordance with its provisions, when Customs Authorities suspect that goods under their supervision infringe intellectual property rights, they may suspend the release of or detain the goods, whether at their own initiative or upon application.

 

On 21 August, Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 2020/1209 was published, amending the previous Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 1352/2013, and therefore partially modifying the forms required for the filing before Customs Authorities of any Application for Action or Renewal pursuant to Regulation (EU) No 608/2013(https://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/reg_impl/2020/1209/oj). The new EU Regulation entered into force on 10 September 2020 and it applies as of today, 15 September.

 

The new provisions take into account the introduction of the EU Customs Trader Portal for the electronic submission of the forms, providing for the Economic Operators Registration and Identification("EORI") number to be included in a mandatory field in the box for both the applicant and the representative in the updated forms.

As a consequence, starting on 15 September, all Applications for Action or Renewal filed before Customs Authorities shall include the appropriate EORI numbers.

 

Do not hesitate to get in contact with us for any further information on the subject!
