New Resolution Intends to Expedite Substantive Examination of Trademark Applications

The Brazilian PTO published on December 26, 2017 the Resolution No. 206 of December 20, 2017 with the purpose to expedite the substantive examination of trademark applications.

The requisites of legitimacy of an applicant will be conducted randomly and the Examiners will only raise an Office Action in case of doubt about the veracity of the informed data. Any interested third party will be allowed to challenge the validity of any information of an applicant by means of an opposition or administrative nullity procedure.

This resolution will be in force after 30 days as of the publication date.
