The EUIPO, in cooperation with the European Commission (DG Trade), has created an anti-counterfeiting tool to bring together in one database all data relating to cases of intellectual property infringement affecting EU companies in countries outside the EU.

ACRIS (Anti-Counterfeiting Rapid Intelligence System) is intended to serve as a single secure information point for both EU businesses and authorities, where companies can share intellectual property infringements testimonies in countries outside the EU and share information on the respective follow-up of these cases by local authorities.

Free and multilingual, this web-based application provides EU businesses with intelligence to help them make informed decisions about their business strategies in third countries and mitigate the risk of future infringements.
