Declaration to WIPO Deposited

On October 7, 2015, Zimbabwe has deposited the declaration to extend the period within which it must reject international trade mark oppositions if they are not to be automatically allowed. The period will extend from 12 to 18 months under Article 5(2) of the Protocol.

Further, Zimbabwe wants in connection with each international registration in which it is mentioned and in connection with the renewal of any such international registration an individual fee instead of a share in the revenue produced by the supplementary and complementary fees.

The said declaration will enter into force on January 7, 2016.
