New Law on Customs Measures Entered into Force


The new Law on Customs Measures for Protection of Intellectual Property Rights entered into force in Kosovo on May 23, 2018, introducing important changes intended to align local customs procedures with Regulation (EU) No. 608/2013 concerning customs enforcement of IP rights.

The new law streamlines the simplified procedure for the destruction of counterfeit goods and introduces the small consignments procedure.

According to the amended simplified procedure, rights holders are no longer required to send a cease and desist letter to notify the owner of the goods about the seizure and to seek consent for destruction. Instead, Kosovo Customs will notify both the rights holder and the owner about the detention within one working day.

The rights holder as well as the owner have 10 working days to react.
