In December 2015 the European Commission launched a consultation on the evaluation and modernisation of the legal framework for the enforcement of intellectual property rights. The consultation closed at the end of April 2016.

The Intellectual Property Office sought stakeholders views on the consultation. The outcome of this consultation is set out here UK government response to EU public consultation on the evaluation of the legal framework for the enforcement of intellectual property rights (PDF, 3.96MB, 24 pages) .

This response follows the general progression of questions as presented in the Commission questionnaire. However, where questions ask for data that the government does not hold, no answer has been attempted. This document was prepared and submitted to the European Commission in April 2016 and therefore pre-dates the UK referendum on membership of the EU.
