On August 7, 2017, the Government of Thailand deposited with the Director General of WIPO its instrument of accession to the Madrid Protocol, making Thailand the 99th member of the Madrid Union and thus of the Madrid System.  The Protocol will enter into force in Thailand on November 7, 2017.  The page on the WIPO website devoted to the accession of Thailand may be found here.
