Trademark Regulations Amended

In May 2021, the Uganda Registration Services Bureau (URSB) informs that the Trademark Act 2010 and the Trademarks Regulations 2012 have been amended by the Trademarks (Amendment) Regulations 2021.

Main changes are the following:
- Agents must now register as trademark agents on the Registry's website. They must renew their registration every year.
- The applicants' addresses must now include an email address, a telephone number and a postal code.
- Searches must now be requested on an official form (TM 27) and are subject to a fee. Previously, a search could be requested by letter.
- Classification will be in accordance with ‘the current edition’ of the International Classification of Goods and Services (Nice Agreement). Until now there has been a specific reference to the 9th edition of the International Classification.
- Publication of an application will no longer be restricted to the Gazette. Publication can now be made in the Gazette "or in other media as the Registrar may direct".
- There is now a statutory form (TM 42 A) for the application "extension of time". An official fee is payable.
