1150 counterfeit toys detained and destroyed in Bulgaria11.12.2019
1150 toys were recently detained by the Bulgarian Customs authorities in Sofia under Regulation 608/2013 due to suspicions that they infringe the trademark of a popular Finnish brand owner. The Finnish company has submitted a EU-wide application for action and listed Bulgaria among the countries where the assistance of the customs authorities is requested.
Roschier Attorneys and ARSIS Consulting teamed up to represent the brand owner within this border seizure and assisted the Finnish brand owner in their communication with the Bulgarian customs authorities, in inspecting the detained shipment in Sofia and confirming the counterfeit nature of the detained products. The fakes were immediately destroyed upon the successful completion of the simplified procedure for quick destruction of counterfeit goods provided by the EU Regulation.
