The article deals with one of the inseparable parts of each state’s economic activity that is customs protection of the intellectual property objects. In industrial and post-industrial society, the importance of intellectual property does not only increase but also becomes an essential element for the formation of a high-tech and innovative economy. As far as the global requirements for the protection of intellectual property items (IPI) have been set forth in the Agreement on Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS), nowadays they are mandatory for every WTO member country. Nevertheless, in connection with the existing system of intellectual property Customs Protection in the Eurasian Economic Union the problems the customs authorities face when dealing with the Intellectual Property rights arise. The types of IP rights infringements are described, as well as the ways of IP rights protection. The article lists the issues related to the customs protection of intellectual property rights through the economic integration. The distinctive features of rendering the state services within the integration consolidation are distinguished. The existing instrument for the IPR objects protection, which is the EEU common customs intellectual property registry (CCIPR) and the national customs intellectual property registry (CIPR) is described. The shortages of this instrument that make it impossible to provide a sufficient level of customs protection of intellectual property rights and the schemes of “gray good” importation are characterized. The ways of their elimination are given. The need of centralization and harmonization of the process of State customs service’s rendering is proved and the options of this purpose achievement are given.
