Amendments to the Trademark and Other Distinctive Signs Law

The amendments to the Law on Trademarks and Other Distinctive Signs which were published in the Official Journal No 81 entered into force on May 15, 2013.

Some of the most important provisions are related to geographical indications and designations of origin, and their registration procedure and regulation of use.

These amendments arise from the need to harmonize legislation with the compromises acquired by El Salvador by signing international treaties, especially the European Union Association Agreement, and also to ensure effective protection of these distinctive signs in order to promote the development of the local economy and export of goods.
