Ratification of EAEU Treaty

On October 27, 2020, the State Duma of the Russian Federal Assembly discussed and adopted the Draft Federal Law On Ratification of the Treaty on Trademarks, Service Marks and Appellations of Origin of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).

The Treaty will enter into force after all EAEU member states have completed the necessary domestic procedures and provide the written notifications to the depositary.

After the Treaty has come into force, it will be possible to submit a single application for registration of a trademark or appellation of origin in order to obtain protection in Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia.

The receiving office processes the regional application, carries out a formal examination, and submits the application to other offices for substantial examination. If the protection cannot be granted in all the EAEU states, the regional application can be converted into a national one.
