Indonesia joints the Madrid System

Madrid SystemThe Government of Indonesia has deposited its instrument of accession to the Madrid Protocol with WIPO’s Director General, making Indonesia the 100th member of the Madrid Union.

The Protocol will enter into force for Indonesia on January 2, 2018.

Starting January 2, local brand owners in Indonesia can file a single international application under the Madrid System to protect their marks in the territories of the System’s other members.

The deposit, made by H.E. Dr. Yasonna Laoly, Minister for Law and Human Rights, includes declarations under Article 5(2)(b) of the Protocol (extension of refusal period to 18 months) and Rule 20bis(6)(b) of the Common Regulations (recording of licenses in the International Register has no effect in Indonesia).

The Madrid System is a convenient and cost-effective solution for registering and managing trademarks worldwide. Users file a single application and pay one set of fees to apply for protection in up to 116 countries. They modify, renew or expand their global trademark portfolio through one centralized system.

Members of the Madrid System meet annually in the Working Group and the Madrid Union Assembly to discuss various matters, with the aim to improve the Madrid System for all users.
