Trade Marks (Amendment) Rules 2013

The Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) has published the Trade Mark (Amendment) Rules 2013 (Circular No. 9/2013, dated 22 November 2013) which came into effect on 1 January 2014.

A summary of the amendments is as follows:
(a) Amendment to the First Schedule of the TM Rules
Item 35 of the First Schedule is amended to clarify that the fee payable for the issuance of a certificate under section 103 of the Trade Marks Act (Cap. 322) is computed on a 'per certificate' basis.
This amendment does not impact the cost of requesting a certificate, as each certificate issued under section 103 may only be in respect of one trade mark.

(b) Amendment to the Third Schedule of the TM Rules
In view of the coming into force of the Tenth Edition, Version 2014 of the Nice Classification (hereinafter abbreviated as "NCL (10-2014)") on 1 January 2014, the Third Schedule is amended to reflect the changes to the Class headings and items introduced by NCL (10-2014).
