Agreement between CH and DE on Reciprocal Protection for Patents, Designs and Trademarks Terminated


By notices dated 30 April and 29 December 2021, Germany terminated the Agreement of 13 April 1892 between Switzerland and Germany on Reciprocal Protection for Patents, Designs and Trade Marks (SR 0.232.149.136).

This decision follows a judgment by the Court of Justice of the European Union dated 22 October 2020 (joined cases C-720/18 and C-721/18), in which the court ruled that the above agreement was incompatible with European law ([EU] Directive on trademarks). The communication of this termination was published on 9 March 2022 in the Official Compilation of Federal Legislation (AS 2022 156), and became effective on 31 May 2022.
