CLDP to Host Second Workshop on Identification and Interdiction of Counterfeit Products in Tajikistan

February 27, 2018 - March 1, 2018

As a follow-up on the Identification and Interdiction of Counterfeit Products Workshop hosted in Dushanbe in October 2016, CLDP, in coordination with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Tajikistan will host the second Workshop on Identification and Interdiction of Counterfeit Products. The training will take place on February 27-March 1, 2018 and consist of a three-day program that will involve experts from the government and private sector in the U.S. and the EU who can speak to officials from the courts, law enforcement, and the Customs Service, among other agencies, to address the threats posed to public safety and public revenue in the country due to counterfeit and pirated goods across a variety of product lines.

The officials present will hear not only about effective methods of identifying authentic versus counterfeit and pirated goods, but will also take part in interactive case studies that will examine technical, institutional, and legislative obstacles to effective IP protection in Tajikistan. Thus, the Workshop will focus upon practical problems encountered in enforcement, covering issues of identification as well as institutional and legislative impediments to inter-agency coordination.

The Identification and Interdiction of Counterfeit Products Workshop will encourage the further adoption and implementation of international standards and best practices for combating trade in counterfeit and pirated products at the border; improve the capacity of Tajik officials to identify and interdict counterfeit products at the border; establish procedures for ongoing coordination and interaction with rights holders to improve the identification of counterfeit products; and facilitate and improve cooperation among the government agencies in Tajikistan responsible for both intellectual property rights and border protection.
