New Guidelines for Examination CTMs and Registered Community Designs


On July 8, 2015, the President of OHIM has signed the Decision adopting the second part of the revised Office Guidelines, which received a favourable opinion from OHIM´s Administrative Board in May. They will enter into force on August 1, 2015.

The new Guidelines will be available on the OHIM website a few days before they enter into force. They are currently available in PDF form, along with the Decision, here. They are accessible to all users – currently in the 5 languages of OHIM.

The Guidelines have been thoroughly updated with case law from the Court of Justice of the EU, the case law of OHIM's Boards of Appeal, and the outcome of the Convergence Programmes. The revision of the Guidelines will increase consistency and predictability for users, and is aligned with the goals of OHIM's Strategic Plan.
