New Regulations on IP internal Procedures

The Bolivian PTO (SENAPI) launched a new version of its regulations on intellectual property internal regulations, which is in force since July 1, 2015.

SENAPI identified some legal vacuums and dispositions contrary to the Decision 486 which establishes the common IP regime for Andean Community members and the Administrative Procedure Law in the former regulations of February 11, 2008.

The new regulations aim to complete and correct the deficiencies found in the former regulations by including definitions, concepts and requirements established in the jurisprudence of the Andean Court of Justice.

Therefore, aspects that were not previously regulated related to trademarks (i.e. oppositions, cancellations, nullity actions, as well as collective, certification and well-known trademarks), patents (i.e. amendments, divisional applications, oppositions, nullity actions, compulsory licenses, and expiration date), utility models, industrial designs, layout-designs of integrated circuits, geographic indications and denominations of origin, are now regulated in the current document.

To access the new regulations on IP internal procedures here (only in Spanish available).
