The course is mainly aimed at customs officers responsible for the enforcement of IPR at the European Union borders.

It can also be useful for businesses wanting to make sure that their rights are correctly defended by customs officers.

How was this course developed?

The course has been developed by the European Commission’s department for Taxation and Customs Union, with the support of national experts and the Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (OHIM).
