New Regulations for TM Registration in Force

The Lithuanian PTO informed that new Regulations for the registration of trademarks were adopted on January 24, 2019. These Regulations implement the new version of the Law on Trademarks, which came into force on January 1, 2019.

The new version of the Regulations implements the EU Directive 2015/2436 and aims at making the registration and protection system of trademarks more accessible and efficient.

Changes are the following:

- Update of electronic application filing system
- New fees
- Registration of new types of marks made possible
- Application process reduced to three stages (filing, payment, submission)
- Certification marks introduced
- Fast-track examination now possible
- Import of Nice Classification headers abolished
