Accession to Banjul Protocol on Marks by Mozambique

On May 15, 2020, the Government of the Republic of Mozambique deposited its Instrument of Accession to the Banjul Protocol on Marks with the Director General of ARIPO. In accordance with the provisions of the Protocol, the latter will enter into force, with respect to the Republic Mozambique, on August 15, 2020.

Pursuant to the above, with effect from August 15, 2020, Mozambique will be eligible for designation.

It is worth noting that Mozambique had already enacted provisions in its Intellectual Property Code (Decree Nr. 47/2015 of 31 December 2015) that would allow the immediate implementation of the Banjul Protocol if it became party to the Protocol (domestication of the Protocol).

The accession to the Banjul Protocol by the Republic of Mozambique brings the number of Member States party to the Protocol to Eleven.
