[重要] 向印度尼西亚进口纺织品、箱包和鞋类需提供商标证书 - AFFA IPR

[重要] 向印度尼西亚进口纺织品、箱包和鞋类需提供商标证书

2024 年 3 月 10 日生效,旨在加强对商标的保护并控制市场上的产品质量,印度尼西亚共和国工业部 (Kemenperin) 开始实施对纺织品、箱包和鞋类产品进口有重大影响的新法规。2024 年第 5 号工业部长条例修正案第 23 (3) 条规定了这些产品进口的技术审查签发程序。   重大变化在于增加了进口商申请进口商识别号(API-U)时必须附加的以下文件:   印尼法律和人权部知识产权总局颁发的商标证书; 商标所有人向授权代表出具的许可协议、再许可和/或委任书的记录证明;以及 商标所有者或授权代表的进口委任书。   受影响产品 –   纺织品:纤维、长丝纱线和片状织物; –   纺织产品:地毯或其他纺织地板覆盖物、服装、服装配件和其他纺织成品; –   箱包:行李箱、钱包、书包、运动包、手提包和其他包袋; –   鞋类:鞋履、凉鞋和软皮鞋。   一般进口许可程序仍适用,贸易型进口企业需要获得一般进口商识别号(API-U)。申请程序包括一般进口商核查(VIU),随后由工业部进行技术审议(Pertek)。要获得 API-U,需要向贸易部提交 VIU 报告和 Pertek 结果。   对进口商的影响 对于尚未在印尼注册商标的进口商,这项新要求是重要提醒。 鉴于商标注册过程耗时较长(约 1-2 年),需要尽快与商标所有人沟通,以获得必要的证书,避免在获得进口许可证方面出现延误。   如需有关该法规的更多信息,包括如何在印尼注册商标,请随时通过电子邮件[email protected]与我们联系。
