In the context of the EU-China Customs Cooperation Action Plan (2014-2017) on IPR Enforcement, IP Key is organising the “3rd IPR Working Group Meeting” and a workshop on "Efficient Communication between Customs and Businesses on IPR Border Enforcement”.

DG TAXUD and OLAF). Participants will debate on:
- The results of the exercise on risk analysis conducted under KA1 (follow up of the meeting held last year in Rome) and next steps;
