Whilst you cannot directly apply to the Royal Malaysian Customs to detain or seize goods, if you suspect that counterfeits of your products are going to be imported into Malaysia you can apply to the Registrar of Trade Marks to invoke a seizure. You must provide certificates proving that you are the owner of the trade mark, and provide information relating to the goods and the shipment to enable the customs officers to identify the imported goods and detain them.
Further to this application, you would then have to file a civil suit to obtain an order that the goods are not to be released. It should also be noted that where the goods have been seized and you fail to commence civil action within the retention period, the person that owns the seized goods may apply to the Court for an order of compensation against you. If the Court is satisfied that the aggrieved person has suffered loss or damage as a result of the seizure of the goods, the Court may order you to pay compensation to the amount that the Court thinks fit.
