Antigua and Barbuda has deposited, on January 9, 2017, the following declaration:

- in accordance with Article 5(2)(b) of the Madrid Protocol (1989), the time limit of one year to exercise the right to notify a refusal of protection referred to in Article 5(2)(a) thereof is replaced by 18 months, and; under Article 5(2)(c) of the said Protocol, when a refusal of protection may result from an opposition to the granting of protection, such refusal may be notified to the International Bureau after the expiry of the 18-month time limit; and

- in accordance with Article 8(7)(a) of the Madrid Protocol (1989), Antigua and Barbuda, in connection with each international registration in which it is mentioned under Article 3ter of the said Protocol, and in connection with the renewal of any such international registration, wants to receive, instead of a share in the revenue produced by the supplementary and complementary fees, an individual fee.

The said declaration will enter into force on April 9, 2017.
