Public consultation on the Trade Marks Directive (EU) 2015/2436

The Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation invite submissions to a public consultation on the transposition of Directive (EU) 2015/2436 of the European Parliament and of the Council to approximate the laws of the Member States relating to trade marks.

The specific objectives of the recast of the Directive are to modernise and improve the existing provisions of the Directive by amending outdated provisions, increasing legal certainty and clarifying trade mark rights in terms of their scope and limitations; achieve greater approximation of national trade mark laws and procedures with the aim of making them more consistent with the European trade mark system; and facilitate cooperation between the offices of the Member States and the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) for the purpose of promoting convergence of practices.
