  7. 1 JULY 2022 DEADLINE FOR MANDATORY RECORDING OF IP RIGHTS ON ALL GOODS IMPORTED INTO KENYA

Published Date: May 18, 2022

Kenya’s Anti-Counterfeit Authority has made it compulsory to record IP rights on all imported goods (not services) in Kenya by no later than 1 July 2022. The public notice published on 26 April 2022 required these rights to be recorded on the Anti-Counterfeit Authority Integrated Management System. Failure to comply will constitute an offence. However, mandatory recording will mean strengthened protection against counterfeiting for those goods once the rights are recorded.

Should you require assistance in recording of IP rights please let us know. For more information on this, see our website article here.
