The Customs Authorities play
an integral part in the
counterfeiting. They are responsible for actively monitoring the
shipments entering and leaving a country. They conduct
shipments bearing illegal goods being imported, if the infringed
have carried out customs recordals.
TLG strongly advises that all our clients ensure that they carry
out customs recordation, as it is an effective tool to prevent
counterfeit goods from being imported. If suspected counterfeit
goods enter a country and customs recordals have been done, the
customs authorities immediately alert TLG based on suspicion.
The brand owners are then contacted by TLG to consult on the
authenticity of the goods. Upon confirmation and instruction
Client, TLG may then take the appropriate legal action not
but including seizure and destruction of goods, as well as
legal action through litigation
