Denunciation of Madrid Agreement from Syria


On June 29, 2012, the Government of the Syrian Arab Republic deposited its instrument of denunciation of the Madrid Agreement concerning the International Registration of Marks (“the Madrid Agreement”). The denunciation will take effect on June 29, 2013.

According to Article 15(5) of the Madrid Agreement, international marks registered up to that date under the Madrid Agreement in respect of the Syrian Arab Republic, and not refused within the period of one year provided for in Article 5, will continue, throughout the period of international protection, to enjoy the same protection in the Syrian Arab Republic as if they had been deposited there directly.

The Syrian Arab Republic continues to be party to the Protocol Relating to the Madrid Agreement concerning the International Registration of Marks (“the Madrid Protocol”), to which it acceded on August 5, 2004.
