Croatia Adopts New Regulations on Border Measures Relating to Infringing Goods
The new regulation came into force on May 13, 2006.
Some of the more important changes include:
Border measures now apply to the goods in transit;
New forms have been created for filing custom applications, as well as declarations;
Requests for destruction of temporarily seized goods under the border surveillance can now be filed by the rights holder without first determining whether the IP rights are in fact infringed;
New provision was introduced concerning the seizure of sample goods for analysis of infringement.
