The aim of this Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) is to consider whether Ireland should ratify the Singapore Treaty on the Law of Trademarks ("the Singapore Treaty").
The objective of the Singapore Treaty is to create a modern and dynamic international framework for the harmonisation of administrative trademark registration procedures. Ratification of the Treaty would require an amendment to Sections 29(3) and (4) of the Trade marks Act 1996, and some amendment to secondary legislation dealing with the trade mark Rules.
