On December 12, 2016, the Decision adopting the first part of the revised Office Guidelines was signed. They will enter into force on February 1, 2017.

The new Guidelines will be published on the EUIPO’s website on the Current trade mark practice and Current design practice pages. The Guidelines have been fully updated with case law from the Court of Justice of the European Union and from the EUIPO’s Boards of Appeal.

The EUIPO Guidelines are the main point of reference for users of the European Union trade mark and design systems, as well as professional advisors who want to make sure they have the latest information on the Office’s examination processes.
