Georgia streamlines Border Measures
Georgia’s Law on Border Measures Related to Intellectual Property came into force at the end of 2011, introducing significant changes in that country's customs surveillance procedure.
Under the amended law, requests to enter IP rights on the Customs Register should be filed by the rights holders or their representatives before the Georgian PTO (SAKPATENTI), not -- as was previously the case -- with the Revenue Service of the Ministry of Finance of Georgia.
Procedural changes now let right holders file requests to enter IP rights on the Customs Register when filling applications for the same rights at the PTO. Thus, as soon as protection is granted, the IP right in question is automatically on the Customs Register; SAKPATENTI then sends a notification to the Revenue Service. Even better, the time it takes to consider a request has been slashed from one month to five working days.
