Accession to Trademark Law Treaty and Regulations

On May 29, 2017, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs published the ratification of the Trademark Law Treaty and the Regulations (TLT) which was made by the President of the Republic of Guatemala.

The Treaty will apply to all product and service trademarks if they are visible signs, (including three-dimensional trademarks) except holograms and non-visible signs, and specially sound marks and olfactory marks.

The requirements and procedures of the applications for registration of trademarks will be still regulated on the Law on Industrial Property and its Regulations, until the necessary modifications which result from the implementation of the aforementioned Treaty are made.
