Trade mark reform – texts of Implementing and Delegated regulations available


The Implementing Regulation laying down detailed rules for implementing certain provisions of Council Regulation (EC) No 207/2009 on the European Union trade mark (Commission reference C(2007) 3224) was adopted today by the European Commission together with the Commission Delegated Regulation supplementing Council Regulation (EC) No 207/2009 on the European Union trade mark and repealing Commission Regulations (EC) No 2868/95 and (EC) No 216/96.

Please note that the official publication of these two acts in the Official Journal of the EU and their subsequent entry into force are still subject to the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union not raising an objection during the period laid down in Article 163a(5) of Council Regulation (EC) No 207/2009.

The provisions in both texts are due to enter into force on 1 October 2017.

Both texts, in all language versions, are publicly available at the Commission's Better Regulation Portal using the following links:
