New rules on customs seizures: Norway aligns with European Union

Norway is introducing new rules on customs seizures of goods that infringe IP rights. The new rules are likely to take effect from January 2021 and are more aligned with the comparable EU rules than the current Norwegian regulations. Nonetheless, Norway will not become part of the EU-wide system for submitting and handling applications for border seizures. Rights holders that have already filed an application for customs seizures in the European Union pursuant to the EU Customs Regulation (608/2013) will still have to file a new application for customs seizures in Norway pursuant to the Norwegian Customs Act.
