European Court of Auditors audited the protection of IPR

Articles 24/08/2022

The Court concluded that, in general, the EU framework on IPR protection is sound, but continues to show weaknesses.

Among them, in particular, the legislation on EU designs is incomplete and outdated and Member States have not uniformly applied the Directive on the enforcement of intellectual property rights, and there are still weaknesses in the implementation of customs controls to ensure the compliance with legislation.
