Competences of Trademark Office Expanded


On September 07, 2018, Legislative Decree No. 1397 was published in the official gazette "El Peruano". The Decree amends Legislative Decree 1075, which approves the complementary provisions to the Decision 486 of the Commission of the Andean Community.

The provisions of the administrative procedures under the responsibility of the National Institute for the Defense of Competition and Protection of Intellectual Property (INDECOPI) have been specified.

The range of IP elements which form part of the competences of the Trademark Office INDECOPI has been extended to include:
- Geographical indications
- Traditional specialties guaranteed

The changes will be in force with the publication of the Supreme Decree that regulates them.
