Soft Launch of New Myanmar Trade Mark Registration System

08 Sep 2020 LegisWatch

On 30 January 2019, the Myanmar Trade Mark Law (Pyidaungsu Htuttaw Law No. 3/2019) was passed.

The Myanmar Ministry of Commerce has announced that the ‘soft launch’ of the new trade mark registration system will commence on 1 October 2020. It is important for owners of existing registered trade marks in Myanmar, and owners of unregistered trade marks which are actually being used in Myanmar, to re-register / register their trade marks during the soft launch period, to secure an earlier filing date and priority under the Myanmar Trade Mark Law.

If you would like information or assistance with re-registration or registration during the ‘soft launch’ period or on any other area of law, you may wish to contact the Partner at WongPartnership whom you normally work with, or the following:
