Accession to Madrid System

On October 6, 2016, Brunei Darussalam deposited with the Director General of WIPO its instrument of accession to the Madrid Protocol for the International Registration of Marks.

Its accession makes Brunei the 98th member of the Madrid System. The Protocol will enter into force with respect to Brunei Darussalam on January 6, 2017.

From early next year, local brand owners in Brunei Darussalam can begin using the Madrid System to protect their marks in the 114 territories of its 98 members, by filing a single international application in one language and paying one set of fees in a single currency.
