Chapter Summary

Art. 69 calls for international cooperation within the framework of the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) Agreement. Art. 69, sentence 2 endorses Arts 51-61 by obliging the Members to establish contact points with the aim of eliminating international trade in goods infringing intellectual property rights. The exchange of information between customs authorities emphasized in Art. 69, sentence 3 is significant in those cases where the export of goods infringing intellectual property rights cannot be prevented, but where the intended State of importation of those goods is known. The World Customs Organization has set up a global enforcement system, facilitating such exchange of information between customs authorities.
