Company and Product Information


The ‘representative account’ is automatically created the first time the representative is appointed as such in one of his client accounts.
The ‘representative account’ will allow you to access the accounts of their various clients with one password. You will have a ‘company portfolio’ with your clients and you can enter various accounts. Once you have a profile created in the IP Enforcement Portal any other rights holder can select your legal office/company and appoint you as their representative in the tool.

Currently, all EU customs have access to the IP Enforcement Portal. Furthermore, a number of police forces already have access to the IP Enforcement Portal, including the EU agencies Europol and the EU anti-fraud agency OLAF. The number of police forces accessing the tool is increasing continuously.
Due to the importance of getting in contact with the rights holders, all enforcement authorities registered in the IP Enforcement Portal have access to the Company information general data on the company as this part is open to them by default.
The Product information level (Product Portfolio) contains detailed and sensitive information on the products. It is protected by a PINsafe and needs to be actively SHARED with the enforcement authorities in order to become visible to them.

A window with a relation of all the enforcement authorities accessing the IP Enforcement Portal will open providing you with the possibility to decide specifically which enforcement authorities you want to share the uploaded information about your products with. If you would like to share it with all authorities acting in the IP Enforcement Portal, please tick the ‘Select All’ box.


The EUIPO does not have access to any information uploaded by rights holders. The IP Enforcement Portal team has, however, access to statistics on the content of the tool.

It is not necessary to upload every single product of your company. In the IP Enforcement Portal a ‘Product’ can cover a range of products with similar characteristics protected under the same IPR and that share similar logistics and distribution channels (here you cover ‘families of products’, sizes, colour differences, similar looks, etc.). You can add different photographs under the same product name.
Furthermore, you can classify your products using the field Category. The categorisation may help you to relate similar products and to filter them in the Product Portfolio table. This categorisation is also useful for the multiple edition functionality, as it is possible to update all the products with a given category.


The maximum size of documents and images/videos is 1.5 MB and the name of the file cannot exceed 100 characters. If you copy-past your images in Windows Paint, the weight drops significantly without losing any quality.

It is very important to associate your products from the Product Portfolio with your IPRs included in the IPR Portfolio under Company Information (mandatory for the customs Application for Action).
To do so, enter the Product Portfolio and choose the corresponding product. Next, click on View IPR related to this Product and then Add new Intellectual Property Rights to the Product.


Select the related IPRs from your IPR Portfolio (that you have previously uploaded into the IP Enforcement Portal from TMview and DesignView for your trade marks and designs) or keyed in for other IP rights (patents, geographical indications, copyrights, etc.).
