Common Communication on New Types of Trademarks

On December 4, 2017, EUIPO published a Common Communication on the representation of new types of trademarks to ensure a smooth transition.

Common Communication gives a complete overview of the state of play of each Office’s transposition process, showing:
- the types of trade mark each Office plans to accept
- the definitions thereof;
- the accepted electronic file formats for sound, motion, multimedia and hologram marks.

The Common Communication also contains an Annex.

After the first publication, the Communication will be updated on a six-monthly basis to reflect the developing positions of the Offices as they advance with the transposition process. The first update is scheduled for June 1, 2018.
