Preparing for Accession to the Madrid Protocol

WIPO and the Brazilian National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) are having talks about the possible accession of Brazil to the Madrid Protocol.

Among several requirements INPI has to adapt to a certain standard of technological infrastructure and man power. Given the operational needs of the Institute, INPI aims to decrease the registration period for Brazilian trademarks from the current 25 months (unopposed marks) to the required 18 months by the end of 2018 in order to be able to start receiving international orders, via the Madrid System, in 2019.
