Indication of e-Mail Adress to be Required for Int. Registrations

The Madrid Union Assembly adopted amendments to Rules 3, 9, 21, 25 and 36 of the Regulations under the Protocol Relating to the Madrid Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Marks (Regulations) that will enter into force on February 1, 2021.

The amendments to Rules 3, 9, 25 and 36 of the Regulations will require that applicants, in the international application, new holders, in a request for the recording of a change in ownership, and representatives, appointed as such in the international application, in a request for recording or in a separate communication, indicate their electronic mail (e mail) address.

The International Bureau will send all communications to applicants, holders or representatives by electronic means to the e mail address on record or by postal services.

If the e-mail address is not indicated, there is an irregularity which the applicant may remedy within three months in order to avoid abandonment of the request by the applicant, holder or representative.
