The Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement for Customs Officers online training series is developed and maintained by the International Intellectual Property Crime Investigators College (IIPCIC) with the assistance of the World Customs Organization (WCO). Developed by a team of transnational subject matter experts with deep experience in Customs enforcement of IP crimes, this eight-module series provides Customs officers from around the world with the knowledge they need to confidently approach the detection and interdiction of illicit goods crossing international borders.
This series covers important topics like the sharing of Customs best practices, international supply chain management, government agency cooperation, private sector partnerships, risk management, and legal proceedings in IPR cases. These topics and others serve to inform Customs officers and promote proven strategies for interdicting IP crime on an international stage.
This curriculum is currently available in English, Mandarin and Arabic. Students must complete each module and pass the accompanying quiz with a score of 80% or better to complete the training and receive their downloadable certificate.
On successful completion of the 8 modules, students are eligible to download an IIPCIC Certificate endorsed by INTERPOL certifying they have successfully completed the "Specialized Curriculum for Customs Officers on IPR Enforcement" online training series. The certificate course, recognized by INTERPOL, provides customs officers with evidence of specialist awareness and learning on the subject of the detection and interdiction of illicit goods crossing international borders.
I would like to thank IIPCIC for offering the courses free of charge to law enforcement agencies around the world. I am looking forward to seeing more courses added to the list.
