Member Profiles Database Introduced

On May 21, 2017 WIPO launched a new e-service the Member Profiles Database which offers a portal to the trademark rules and examination procedures of Madrid System members.

The Member Profiles Database is useful when preparing an international trademark application to uncover details about trademark offices in the target markets, including which types of trademarks can be protected and how to file an international application through the ‘home’ Office of origin.

After the trademark has been registered through the Madrid System, the database’s interface gives access to key procedures and time limits applicable in the countries or regions of Madrid System members which have been designated under the international registration.
