New Trade Mark Opposition Tribunal


On June 19, 2019, the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment inaugurated a new Trade Mark Tribunal, with the view of accelerating oppositions and related matters.

The new Trade Mark Tribunal will function as the administrative arm of the Registry of Trade Marks and the idea is that, in practice, the Registrar of Trade Marks will delegate this administrative function to competent officers while under the supervision of the Registrar.

It is to be hoped that the Tribunal will expedite the dispensation and resolution of opposition matters in Nigeria and eliminate the current backlogs in opposition matters.
