Chapter Summary

Art. 60 reflects the practical difficulties of the enforcement of border measures regarding small quantities of goods of a non-commercial nature. Customs authorities are confronted with the limits of their possibilities especially when dealing with the importation of infringing goods in travellers' personal luggage. Moreover, one should point out the potential abuse of the de minimis clause regarding the possibility of a multitude importation of a small amount of infringing goods, i.e. imports made by persons pretending to travel privately, each of them carrying only small amounts of pirated goods.

Keywords: de minimis imports; infringing goods
