The Gallo-Rapkay amendments on goods in transit put forward in a report on the Community Trade Mark Regulation and Trade Mark Directive have been adopted by the Members of the European Parliament. Following the European Court of Justice’s decision in the Nokia/Philips case, European Customs could check for counterfeit goods in transit within the EU, but only had the power to stop the goods where there was a risk they could enter into the single market. This led to a loss in power to seize goods. If adopted by the Council, the effect of the amendments would be to overturn this decision and give customs the ability to confiscate imitation products regardless of their final alleged destination.
