Stakeholder consultation on trade mark guidelines

The EU-Georgia Intellectual Property Project (EUGIPP) has been supporting the National Intellectual Property Center of Georgia Sakpatenti) to develop examination guidelines for national and international trade mark applications. IP experts spent several months working in close collaboration with lawyers from the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and Sakpatenti to draft these guidelines.

On 8 and 9 November 2022, the EUGIPP and Sakpatenti will hold a round of consultations with the relevant Georgian stakeholders. The purpose of these consultations is to collect feedback from stakeholders, which may be included in the final version before adoption by Sakpatenti.

The guidelines on trade marks are an important project milestone. They will enhance the administrative frameworks for protecting intellectual property rights (IPR) in Georgia and will improve the quality of IPR administration services. Moreover, they aim to ensure decisions taken by Sakpatenti are consistent and guarantee the predictability of Sakpatenti’s file handling practice.
