Common Communication on New Types of Marks


On April 14, 2021, the EUIPO informs that the CP11 Common Communication on ‘New types of marks: Examination of formal requirements and grounds for refusal’ has been published across the EU on the websites of the EU IP Offices.

The CP11 Common Practice was adopted by the Management Board by written procedure in October 2020. It delivers a set of general principles and examples on the examination of formal requirements and grounds for refusal and/or invalidity regarding sound, motion, multimedia and hologram marks and the new ways of representing them. It also informs about the implementation dates for each participating EU IP Office and the proceedings on which it will be implemented.

The Common Communication document is available in all EU languages here
