New Regulation on Trademark Registration


A new trademark regulation entered into force in Albania on June 7, 2018. It clarifies a range of issues raised by the changes to the Albanian Industrial Property Law in force as of March 24, 2017. Some of the most significant changes and clarifications concern the following:

- Clear definition of trademark types and representation requirements
- Literal interpretation of the scope of protection when class headings are used in lists of goods and services in trademark applications and registrations
- Introduction of detailed rules on applications and registration procedures on each type of trademarks and the procedure for the opposition of registration, trademark protection and exemption from protection
- Guidance for the determination of well-known trademarks

The regulation was accompanied be the introduction of official fees. The fee for filing a trademark is now ALL 7,000 and for each additional class ALL 2,500.
