Saudi Arabian Customs hold IP event in Riyadh in January 2012

A report from good friends, Nassir Kadasa & Partners, in Riyadh, brings news of a conference and exhibition organised by the Customs Authority of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in Riyadh on the afternoon of Saturday 28 January 2012 at the Customs Headquarters. A limited number of service providers in Saudi Arabia have been invited to exhibit details of the rights and rights holders they represent to an audience made up exclusively of officials from Customs in the Kingdom.

This part of the Empty Quarter has had good experiences of Customs in Saudi Arabia and knows that they can be very effective at inspecting and detaining shipments of counterfeit goods, coupled with a good balance between procedural formality and the exercise of discretion on deadlines. Opportunities for representatives of rights holders to share information with Customs officials are welcome and can only further enhance the understanding of IP amongst those charged with guarding the borders.
