Export to Japan 30: Registration Process and Procedures: IPR (trademark & others)

12-01-22 | 10:30 - 11:00 AM CET

This is the second round of the online training series “What you should know when exporting to Japan”. It briefs in 30 minutes on the latest information on export processes and procedures relating to EU exports to Japan. It also covers trade and administrative rules and regulations relevant to EU businesses which are new to exporting as well as those which carry out regular, on-going businesses with Japan.

Focus is given to small and medium sized EU enterprises (SMEs) and to those sectors which offer growing opportunities to EU exports to Japan, i.e., food and health sectors.

How is your intellectual property (IP) protected under the EU-Japan EPA?

Intellectual property (IP) infringement such as counterfeiting and piracy is of great concerns to EU exporters. Exporters normally do not have effective means to protect exclusive business identities overseas, other than making a national IP registration of trademark, patent, industrial design, copyright, or trade secret. Cross-border IP protection is, therefore, essential for IP owners to gain a competitive edge and secure fair competition on cross-border trade. Particularly, IP protection is indispensable for small- and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) who focus on returns on investment and survival in global competition and cannot afford a complicated, legal case overseas.
