Updated Guidelines Enter into Force

On February 1, 2015, the first set of OHIM´s updated guidelines entered into force, following their adoption by the President of the Office on December 4, 2014 (Decision EX-14-4).

The corresponding documents are available under the current trade mark practice page and the current designs practice page of the website.

The texts can be accessed in English, French, German, Italian or Spanish under a clean version or under a version with track changes. With the latter, the user can clearly distinguish the changes that have been implemented since the version adopted last year by the President.

The changes in the guidelines have been summarized in the last edition of Alicante News. An overview of the modifications the Office has implemented can be seen here

The update of the second work package of the guidelines is set to deliver results around mid-2015; therefore the full cycle of revision will be completed by then.
