Accession to Madrid Protocol


On September 27, 2019, the Government of Malaysia deposited its instrument of accession to the Madrid Protocol.

By this, local brand owners in Malaysia can begin using the Madrid System to protect their marks in the 121 territories of the System’s other 105 members by filing a single international application.

The deposit includes declarations under Articles 5(2)(b) and (c) of the Protocol (extension of the refusal period to 18 months and beyond for oppositions), Article 8(7)(a) of the Protocol (individual fees), and under Rules 7(2) (intent to use) and 20bis(6)(b) (recording of licenses in the International Register has no effect in Malaysia), of the Common Regulations.

The Protocol will enter into force for Malaysia on December 27, 2019.
