E-011279/2015(ASW)
Answer given by Ms Bieńkowska on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-011279/2015

As announced in the action plan on enforcement of IPR(1), the Commission initiated in summer 2015 the consultation process related to the action on due diligence in supply chains. On 5 June 2015, it organised the workshop ‘Due diligence in supply chains: How can responsible supply chain management improve respect for intellectual property?’(2). A wide range of cross-sector experts representing academia, right holders, track and trace companies, NGOs, and consumer associations participated in this event. The participants were also invited to comment on a draft questionnaire prepared by the Commission in view of the launch of an online public consultation in the autumn 2015.

By the end of the year the Commission will launch a public consultation in order to evaluate the directive on the enforcement of intellectual property rights (IPRED) following the announcement in the communication on a Digital Single Market Strategy for Europe(3) of a modernisation of the enforcement of intellectual property rights.
