Soft Opening of New Trade Mark Register

Myanmar’s Trade Mark Act will be the first of the four new intellectual property legislation to be implemented and is expected to come into force in the middle of next year.

The Trademark Office of Myanmar is expected to begin working in form of a ‘soft opening’. Further details are expected to be released soon. During the soft launch the Office will only accept applications from trademark proprietors who have prior registrations with the Office of the Registration of Deeds.

Proprietors are strongly advised to secure the earliest filing date during this soft opening period which is expected to last three to four months. No official fees will be collected, and all applications submitted during this period will be treated as submitted on the first day that Myanmar’s Trade Mark Register is established.

For those who have not yet registered a Declaration of Ownership, should consider this as soon as possible in order to try to make use of the possibility of an early submission during the soft opening period.
