EUIPO – Institute for Intellectual Property of Bosnia and Herzegovina (IIP): Workshop
Workshop on the Directive (EU) 2015/2436 to approximate the laws of the Member States relating to trade marks
On 15 March the EUIPO and the IIP hosted an online training session dealing with the changes that occurred after the adoption of the Directive (EU) 2015/2436. In particular, the online training session focused on the changes to how a trade mark is represented and examined. Furthermore, the convergence of practices was also presented.
This informative session was organised following the online Heads meeting between the IIP and the EUIPO in September 2020. This session was of particular interest to the IIP as Bosnia and Herzegovina is currently in the status ‘potential candidate for EU membership’ and the preparatory work of approximation of the Law on Trade Marks with the EU’s acquis are still ongoing.
This international cooperation activity falls under Strategic Driver 1 – Interconnected, Effective and Reliable IP System. It contributes to Strategic Goal 1.1 – Matching tools and practices with users’ needs, with Key Initiative 3 – Enhanced engagement with global partners for the extension of common tools and practices.
