First set of updated Guidelines enter into force


On 01/02/2015, the first set of EUIPO´s updated Guidelines enters 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 pageof 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. Don’t hesitate to have a look to get an overview of the modifications the Office has implemented.
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.
