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.

Customs shall proceed ex officio to suspend the clearance of goods that are obviously counterfeit. The representative of the trademark is notified of the possible infringement, in order for him to provide information about the authenticity of such products in a short deadline. Within the same period, the owner or representative of the trademark must file a complaint and request that the decreed measure be maintained.
