Updated Guidelines Enter into Force

On August 1, 2015, the second set of the updated OHIM Guidelines entered into force, following their adoption by the President of the Office on July 8, 2015 (Decision EX-15-2).

The corresponding documents are available on the website’s Current trade mark practice page and the Current designs practice page.

The texts can be accessed in English, French, German, Italian or Spanish under a clean version or under a track-changed version.

On September 9, 2015, a webinar on the new Guidelines will be broadcast live.

The OHIM Guidelines are the main point of reference for users of the Community trade mark system and professional advisers who want to make sure they have the latest information on OHIM’s examination practices. However, it needs to be noted that the guidelines are not binding.
