Notification by CO on Common Regulations on Division/Merger of International Registrations


The Government of Colombia has notified WIPO in accordance with new Rules 27ter(2)(b) and 40(6) of the Common Regulations, which will enter into force on February 1, 2019.

In accordance with new Rule 27ter(2)(b), Colombia has declared that its Office will not present to WIPO's requests for the merger of international registrations resulting from division, under paragraph (2)(a) of this new Rule, because the Andean Community Decision Number 486 Establishing the Common Industrial Property Regime (Decision 486) does not provide for the merger of registrations of a mark.

In addition, in accordance with new Rule 40(6), Colombia has notified that new Rule 27bis(1) of the Common Regulations is not compatible with Decision 486 and shall not apply in respect of Colombia. As a result, Colombia will not present to WIPO requests for the division of an international registration in respect of Colombia under this new Rule.
