Enforcement Forum

IPR enforcement is crucial for the proper implementation of the association agreement between the EU and Georgia. It contributes to create the best possible conditions for European and Georgian companies to invest and trade in the region by ensuring that trade-related rules, including IPR, are respected and implemented. Effective IPR enforcement is essential for innovation-related investments in the region, as it allows innovative companies to recoup their investments in R&D, product design, branding, marketing and other creative or business activities.

Under this framework, the EUGIPP organised an ‘enforcement forum’ from 14 to 15 June 2021 to gather and engage with Georgian enforcement authorities, judges, along with private sector representatives during a trade mark exhibition. The activity aimed to encourage participants to engage further in enforcing IP rights and promote the use of best practices on border and internal enforcement measures to prosecute IP infringement. In particular, the workshop focused on the exchange of information on legislation and practices for the surveillance of IP infringement at the border, internal and digital markets.
