Patent Office to Take Lead in Trademark Cancellations

Law No. 6769 on Industrial Property (“IP Law”) was published in the Official Gazette on January 10, 2017, and the majority of its provisions came into effect on the same date. However, Article 26 of the IP Law, titled "Cancellation Cases and Cancellation Request," was scheduled to come into effect seven years after the publication of the law. Decisions regarding the cancellation of registered trademarks will be made by the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office (“TPTO”) starting from January 10, 2024. Turkish Patent and Trademark Office released a draft regulation on October 20, 2023, regarding the implementation of the cancellation system. The public consultation period for this draft has ended. The aim of this regulation is to align with EU Directive No. 2015/2436 of the European Parliament and EU Regulation No. 2015/2424 of the European Parliament. The amendment is expected to make the trademark cancellation process easier, faster, and more cost-effective.
