Tilleke & Gibbins

Tilleke & Gibbins has assisted a number of clients in successfully enforcing their intellectual property rights (IPRs) at border gates by employing border control measures. This article provides detailed guidelines on how IPR owners can take advantage of the customs enforcement options available in Vietnam. The authors begin with an overview of the legal basis for border measures in Vietnamese statutes and regulations. This discussion is followed by a practical introduction to the customs monitoring process, including required supporting documents, and a review of the process for suspension of customs clearance and verification of IPR infringement.
