Common Practice on Evidence in TM Appeal Proceedings


On March 31, 2021, the EUIPO informs that the CP12 Common Practice/Recommendations on Evidence in trade mark appeal proceedings has now been published across the EU on the websites of the EU IP Offices.

CP12 is the first convergence initiative in the area of trademark appeal proceedings and focuses on delivering a set of recommendations in relation to evidence.

The CP12 Common Practice focuses on the following:
- types of evidence and their admissibility at the stage of appeal proceedings;
- means and sources of evidence, including its genuineness, veracity and reliability;
- establishing the relevant date of evidence;
- ways to present evidence: structure and presentation, including acceptable formats, size and volume, index of annexes and templates;
- confidentiality of evidence.

The Common Communication document is available in all EU languages here
