The Portal is an interactive, reliable and user-friendly tool for EU IPR enforcement, serving as a secure communication tool between all related parties: rights holders (and/or their legal representatives), EU enforcement authorities, the EU Commission and its EU delegations around the world.

A communication platform between all parties in enforcement

The platform permits all rights holders, enforcers and the EU Commission and its EU delegations to enter informationrelated to IPR enforcement through drop-down menus in their own language.

Rights holders

Protect originals

Rights holders can protect their products against counterfeiting by sharing information on their products, IP rights and contact data with EU enforcement authorities. This will make it easier for enforcers to recognise originals from fake goods (on the basis of information such as packaging, identifiers, logistics), contact the rights holders if needed and take action.

Report IPR infringement cases in third countries to the EU Commission (DG Trade)

Including information on the procedures chosen to enforce these cases so that the Commission is aware of the IPR landscape in these countries and can adapt their strategy.

File and extend customs’ Application for Action (AFA) electronically

This legal document is necessary for any customs administration to take action on your behalf on products counterfeiting your IP rights.

Receive an overview of the IP infringement landscape in countries outside of the EU

To better understand the landscape in a specific country to shape your business strategy there more effectively.

Multilingual exchange

The tool permits all users to enter information through drop-down menus in their own language. The same information can be viewed in any of the 23 languages of the EU.

REQUEST RIGHTS HOLDER ACCOUNT

Terms and Conditions.

As a right holder you will need a valid registered trade mark or a valid registered design within the European Union. Legal representatives can request an account for their clients, indicating a trade mark or design (European Union or national). Legal representatives can have a “legal representative” account to have access to their clients` account with their own credentials.

Enforcers

Information exchange with rights holders on specific cases

The tool allows the exchange of key information between rights holders and enforcement authorities to help distinguish between original and fake goods. Customs and police officers can use the information in the tool to recognise counterfeited goods and contact the rights holders to discuss a case.

Statistics on detentions

The tool contains data on the detentions of articles that are suspected of infringing intellectual property at borders and in the internal market. With this you can report and follow your own authority’s activity.

Alerts on trends

Enforcers can receive alerts from rights holders on new trends or on a specific case from which enforcers can take action.

Reports

All authorities’ data is converted into a harmonised format so that it can be compared and aggregated, allowing further analysis and the creation of individualised reports. The tool provides simple reports to analyse trends. Ad hoc reports on data analysis and EU trends will be prepared to help enforcers target their work.
