Announcement Description

Madrid System:  Simplified Procedure for Requesting a Change in the Legal Nature of a Holder of an International Registration that is a Legal Entity

Starting July 1, 2017, the holder of an international registration that is a legal entity can add or update its legal nature as recorded by WIPO (e.g. limited liability company, cooperative, corporation) using the same form required for a standard name or address change (Form MM9). A change in the territory where the legal entity is organized can also be requested using Section 4 of MM9.  WIPO has posted a special news release and related links here.  Regarding all amendments that enter into force on July 1, 2017, see the TTIL Committee Public Announcement of June 12, 2017, entitled, "Amendments to the Common Regulations and Schedule of Fees of the Madrid System that Enter into Force on July 1, 2017," which may be found below or, if you are not already there, on the "Trademark Treaties and International Law Home" page.
