Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/1209 of 13 August 2020 amends the Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1352/2013 establishing the forms provided for in Regulation (EU) No 608/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning customs enforcement of intellectual property rights. The Regulation went into force on September 15, 2020.

All right holders and their representatives are now required to include an EORI number (Economic Operators Registration and Identification number) when electronically submitting an application requesting that customs authorities take action with respect to goods suspected of infringing an IP right and to submit a request for extension of the period during which the customs authorities are to take action.

The EORI number is a unique identification number of applicants and their representatives.
