Taichung Customs urges exports compliant with Regulations Governing Export of Commodities, and accuracy of trademarks.

Recently Taichung Customs has reported seizures of exporting goods bearing false trademarks and they remind exporters of the provisions of Article 10 of Regulations Governing Export of Commodities when filing exporting declaration. Exporters shall accurately declare the goods they are exporting as well as trademarks which are marked on internal or external packages or both, or on the goods containers. Identical trademark stickers must be affixed with the export declaration documents as proof of customs clearance for examination.

Taichung Customs advises that the new mechanism “Paperless Export Clearance System”, announced by Customs Administration, was introduced on September 23, 2015. The benefit of this mechanism is that declarations which are selected to go through C2 paperless procedures could apply an on-line declaration instead of filing physical paper documentation.

Taichung Customs especially stresses that operators exporting any goods bearing trademarks shall themselves ascertain the ownership of the said trademarks so as not to infringe regulations of counterfeit goods. Exporters infringing the relative regulations shall be liable under Regulations Governing Customs Measures in Protecting the Rights and Interests of Trademark. Taichung Customs advises that exporters should be more careful about declarations when trademarks are involved.
