Outstanding Public and Private Partnership in the Fight against Counterfeiting (with photo)


The Customs and Excise Department (C&ED) has been presented with an award for Outstanding Public and Private Partnership in the Fight against Counterfeiting by the International Intellectual Property Crime Investigators College (IIPCIC) operated under INTERPOL and Underwriters Laboratories (UL). This is the second such award received by the department in two years.

This year, the C&ED was commended for, in addition to enforcement, the further efforts made by its Intellectual Property Investigation Bureau (IPIB). In view of the increasing complexity of IPR offences, the IPIB has gone one step further over the years in promoting communication and co-operation between the public and private sectors and in advocating training and educational opportunities on IPR.

Noting that co-operation between law enforcement agencies and IPR owners is pivotal in the fight against IPR offences, the C&ED in collaboration with the IPR industry established the Intellectual Property Rights Protection Alliance in 2004. Through an effective public-private partnership, the C&ED and the IPR industry jointly monitor the piracy and counterfeiting situation in the market, formulate strategic plans, and educate the public on the importance of IPR protection.
