To help enforcement authorities develop their understanding and to assist them in their investigative work, we provide a series of guides as well as access to key resources.

The guides include tips and advice from leading bodies in the field including Europol and customs authorities from throughout the world. The catalogue of links will enable you to contact both private and public bodies engaged in intellectual property and enforcement-related activities, including national authorities and associations representing intellectual property rights owners.

Here you will find a list of tools and databases developed to support enforcement.
