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.
