By statistics, in 2019, Harbin Customs District seized inbound and outbound IPR-infringing goods in 973 batches, nearly 5,000 pieces in total, involving garments, caps, footwear, auto parts, bags and wristwatches, so as to protect 53 IPR owners’ rights and interests.
From April 26, 2020, the 20th World Intellectual Property Day, Harbin Customs has been taking closer control on the counterfeit risk of outbound anti-epidemic supplies, with intensive policy promotion to local enterprises for IPR protection and the risk prevention.
Reportedly, this year, Harbin Customs will continue the “Soaring Dragon” campaign for IPR enforcement. To precisely seize the infringement, the Customs will focus on the high-risk products (such as auto parts, garments, wristwatches, footwear, electronic devices, leather bags, healthcare articles, eyeglasses and toys), as well as on the postal and express channels. In addition, the Customs will, through local provincial collaboration mechanism, improve information sharing and resource cooperation with other regulatory agencies, IPR owners, industrial associations and third-party professionals to jointly control the IPR risk in all ways.
