Common Practice on Absolute Grounds for Refusal (CP3)


The Industrial Property Office of the Business Development Agency of the Principality of Monaco (MCIPO) has published a practice paper on the examination of absolute grounds for refusal for figurative trademarks with purely descriptive words or expressions.

The publication aims at increasing transparency, legal certainty, and predictability for the benefit of examiners and users alike. It has been tailored-made to the specificities of MCIPO, providing an overview of MCIPO quality standards for applications received electronically and on paper.

The practice paper is available in French and English and divided into two parts: the first part summarises the criteria, while the second part provides a complete explanation of the different criteria applicable in each case.
