Guidelines on Examination of 3D Marks Issued

On 13 May 2022, the Court of Justice of the Andean Community published Interpretation No. 81-IP-2020 on the examination of 3D marks. The new guidelines clarify that 3D marks may consist only of shapes or be a combination of shapes and additional elements and describe the different elements that the Andean Community’s IP Offices (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru) must consider when examining these marks. These guidelines are important as they recognize the protection of 3D marks and harmonize how IP offices of the Andean Community examine these applications.
