Turkey: Customs Recordal Possible

May 31, 2012

The recordal of trademarks is possible at the Turkish Customs. As such, trademarks will be placed on watch, and products bearing the recorded mark or bearing a similar mark will be monitored and inspected ex-officio. Products suspected of being counterfeit will be suspended and the rights owner as well as the importer will be immediately notified. This recordation is valid for one year, renewable for like periods.

The documents required for the recordal are as follows:

1-  Power of Attorney, notarized with an Apostille certification.
2-  Certified copy of the registration certificate of the trademark to be recorded.
3-  Application form.
4- An electronic presentation of the original product to aid the Customs officials in detecting counterfeit products and differentiating them from original ones.
