CIS Countries Sign New Cooperation Agreement against Use of False TMs and GIs


On May 28, 2021, the CIS Council of Heads of Government signed the Agreement on Cooperation of CIS Member States on Prevention and Suppression of Use of False Trademarks and Geographical Indications. The member states of the Commonwealth of Independent States are Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.

The document replaces the existing Agreement signed in 1999, inspired by the TRIPS Agreement and the Madrid Agreement for the Repression of False or Deceptive Indications of Source on Goods. It was aimed at establishing the coordination mechanism among the law enforcement bodies to protect the interests of rightsholders and consumers against unfair use of indications on products.

The reviewed act optimizes the arrangements of the Parties, adjusts terminology, and updates the legal acts underlying the cooperation. The new Agreement shall enter into force 30 days after the third Party deposits a written notification that it has completed its domestic procedures. For those Parties that complete their domestic procedures later, the Agreement shall enter into force 30 days after the deposit of their written notifications.
