Jamaica Joins the Madrid System

On 27 December 2021, the Government of Jamaica sent WIPO its instrument of accession to the Protocol Relating to the Madrid Agreement, making it the 110th member of the Madrid System. The Madrid Protocol will enter into force for Jamaica on 27 March 2022.

From that date, local brand owners in Jamaica will be able to use the Madrid System to protect their trade marks internationally by filing a single international application and paying a single set of fees.

The Madrid Protocol is a multinational trade mark registration system. It includes over 100 countries and makes it possible to protect a mark with an international registration covering each of the designated countries. With its cost-effective and straightforward designation process, foreign companies and trade mark owners will now be able to seek protection through the Madrid System when selling their goods and services in Jamaica.
