New trademark guidelines just launched!
After nearly two years of work by the Standing Committee on Improvement of Procedures and Trademark Analysis Guidelines (CPAPD), the local PTO (INPI) launched the INPI Trademark Guidelines on December 9, 2014. This document replaces the former guidelines and user manual, as well as other internal use sources.
The new guidelines are available exclusively on the INPI website. The document includes the procedures and guidelines for the examination of trademarks, as well as instructions for filing and monitoring proceedings. In this sense, the guidelines will serve as a reference for both INPI examiners and external users, ensuring greater transparency in INPI internal processes.
