Procedure (special aspects)

Although there is an Administrative surveillance procedure, once a counterfeit product is found, there is no simplified administrative procedure for the destruction of the goods.

The Trademark Fraud Division notifies the holder of the trademarks, so that within a short deadline he/she may state his/her opinion as to the authenticity or otherwise of the seized merchandise.

For this purpose, the owner shall submit a written statement stating whether the merchandise in question is false or genuine. The holder must initiate the corresponding administrative or legal actions for the destruction of the false merchandise.
