On April 21-23, 2009, the Macedonian Customs held a training session on the enforcement of the Law on the Customs Measures for the Protection of IP Rights.

The training was held as part of the TAIEX program in Macedonia. TAIEX stands for the Technical Assistance and Information Exchange Instrument of the Institution Building unit of the Directorate-General Enlargement of the European Commission. Its aim is to provide the new EU member states, acceding countries, candidate countries, and the administrations of the Western Balkans with short-term technical assistance in the field of approximation, application and enforcement of EU legislation.

The following topics were addressed at the training session: how to enforce the customs legislation in Macedonia and in the EU member states, plans for new EU regulations, the EU Action Plan for IP rights for 2009-2012, and ways to improve Macedonia’s customs work in the area of IP rights protection.

The training was conducted by Daniel Koener from the Luxembourg Customs, and Antonio Lloret Macián from the Spanish Customs.
