Dubai customs organises Intellectual Property Rights workshops

DUBAI: Dubai Customs has enhanced its outreach activities by organising Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) protection awareness workshops in cooperation with the Abu Dhabi Customs Administration in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain under the title: “Dubai Customs Intellectual Property Achievements”.

A total of 80 trainees from customs centres in both cities participated in the workshops, which came as part of the joint efforts exerted to counter piracy and counterfeiting in accordance with a joint Memorandum of Understanding and Cooperation signed in 2011.

During the workshops, the Manager of Awareness and Education at the IPR Department, Mahbooba Baqer, and Awareness and Education Officer, Aisha Hareb, presented plans and programmes implemented by the Department to control intellectual property infringements, in line with the Dubai Customs vital role as the first line of defence for the community’s security, health, and economy.

The IPR awareness and education courses contribute to community engagement in the efforts to counter infringements to such rights, as the continuous seizures of counterfeit goods reflect significant progress in the course of combating such phenomenon and protection against its adverse economic and health impacts, according to Dubai Customs.
