Trade mark reform – Adoption of replacement Delegated and Implementing regulations
On 5th March 2018, the European Commission adopted the new secondary legislation package for the EU trade mark comprising Delegated Regulation C(2018)1231 and Implementing Regulation C(2018)1225.
The publication of these acts in the Official Journal of the EU and their subsequent entry into force is subject to the right of the European Parliament and of the Council to lodge objections to Delegated Regulation C(2018)1231 in accordance with Article 208 of Regulation (EU) 2017/1001.
In substance the new acts will be the same as the legislation that they will replace (Delegated Regulation 2017/1430 and Implementing Regulation 2017/1431) but they will cross refer to the new codified EUTMR (EU) 2017/1001 and they will also contain stylistic changes in format and language.
The numbering of Articles will remain the same except for the transitional provisions at the end of both acts
