Enforce your intellectual property rights against counterfeiters and use border protection measures to proactively protect your intellectual property.

The availability of preventive measures at Customs is vital in the fight against counterfeiting. In light of this, the Customs Code and the relevant customs regulations have been amended in line with trips. These now offer rights holders strong protection through Turkish Customs.

Until January 10, 2017, trademark protection in Turkey was regulated through the Decree-Law No. 556. After January 10, 2017 however, this the Decree-Law No. 556 and other IP related Decrees were revoked and replaced by Industrial Property Law No. 6769 (hereinafter referred as “IP Law No. 6769”). IP Law No. 6769 covers not only Trademark Law but also Patent Law, Industrial Design Law, Geographical Indications Law, Plant Variety Law and Integrated Circuit Topography Law. These recent changes in legislation aim to more effectively combat the counterfeiting of goods, which is seen as a huge issue in Turkey.

According to a new report by the OECD and the EU’s Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), Turkey now stands at 3.3% of global trade in counterfeit and pirated goods. Counterfeit products especially in sectors like medical products, cosmetics and food industry constitutes a serious health and safety hazard for the consumers.
