Council Regulation (EC) 1383/2003 of 22 July 2003 concerning customs action against goods suspected of infringing certain intellectual property rights and the measures to be taken against goods found to have infringed such rights

This Regulation lays down, on the one hand, the conditions for customs action where goods are suspected of infringing intellectual property rights, and on the other hand the measures to be taken against goods that have been found to infringe intellectual property rights. It extends the scope of application to new types of intellectual property rights: new plant varieties, geographical indications and designations of origin any mould or matrix designed or adapted for the manufacture of goods infringing an intellectual property right.
