New Administrative Procedure for TM Invalidity and Revocation Soon

On 29 November 2022, the Decree of the Ministry of Economic Development of 19 July 2022, n. 180, was published amending the Italian Industrial Property Code to introduce administrative proceedings for invalidation and revocation of registered trademarks before the Italian Intellectual Property Office (UIBM).

As from 29 December 2022, it will be possible to file an action for invalidity and revocation against registered Italian trademarks before the UIBM through an administrative procedure.

Until now, Italy was one of the few countries in the European Union where no administrative procedure was available for trademark invalidation and revocation actions. Such actions could only be filed before the ordinary courts which remain available as an alternative route.
