Ex-Officio detention: Action to be taken following the acceptance of an application for action

If the right-holder lodges an application the IPAU will notify the detecting office and the consignment can then be dealt with under section 2140. It should be noted that the right holder will then have the full 10 days from the day after the application is received to examine the goods and decide whether they infringe their Intellectual Property Rights.
