TM Registration in Southern Sudan

The Ministry of Justice in Southern Sudan has issued directives to officials at the Trademark Office that they adopt certain procedures known as “Reservation of a Trademark” until issuance of a trademark law. The said procedures could be summarized as follows:

1) A written application is submitted to the Registrar indicating the trademark sought to be protected, as well as prints of the mark in question.
2) The Registrar will conduct search in the data base of the Registry to ascertain whether the mark is registered or not.
3) If the mark is not registered, it will be “reserved” in applicant’s name, and no other person will be allowed to use the said mark.

Please note that no official fees have been fixed yet for such procedure.
