Support the IP enforcement network in Georgia

On 9-11 May 2023 the EU-Georgia Intellectual Property Project will organise a study visit to Hungary to allow Georgian enforcement authorities to become familiar with different IP systems in order to replicate best practices in Georgia.

Representatives of the Georgian revenue Service, Investigation Service General Prosecutor's Office of Georgia and Sakpatenti will participate. During the two-day trip, the delegation will visit the Regional Training Centre of the World Customs Organisation (WCO) in Budapest, the Airport Directorate of the National Tax and Customs Administration (NTCA) of Hungary, the Regional Dog Training Centre of the WCO, and the Röszke border crossing point.

To improve the actions taken by enforcement authorities and judges, cooperation between the different IP practitioners in the country (i.e., judges, enforcement authorities and rights holders) was intensified during 2021 and 2022.

The project continues supporting the enforcement network under the coordination of Sakpatenti and with the personal participation of judges, prosecutors, investigators and patent attorneys. Within this network, issues related to the enforcement of IP rights (from legal interpretation to the adoption of IP practices or tools) have been analysed and discussed with the purpose of strengthening the Georgian IP system.
