The recordation process is a tool to protect intellectual property rights at the border.
Some imported goods bear trademarks that are counterfeits or infringing of registered trademarks. The importation of such goods threatens the economy, in some cases, the health and safety of consumers.
If your business’s products are likely targets for international counterfeiters, consider applying to record your trademark registration with Customs and Border Protection.
Recording your trademark registration helps Customs detain and seize imported goods if they violate your recorded trademark.
