JPO Conducted IPR Training Course on Trademark Examinations
Under the Madrid System for Indonesia

July 28, 2016

In order to support developing and emerging countries with the development of human resources who engage in the industrial property rights system, the Japan Patent Office (JPO) has been inviting trainees from developing and emerging countries of the Asia-Pacific region, Latin America, and Africa, and conducting training programs for them in Japan.

From July 22 to 28, the JPO conducted the IPR Training Course on Trademark Examinations under the Madrid System for Indonesia, targeting at Indonesian trademark examiners, in order to assist Indonesia in preparing for its accession to the Madrid Protocol for the International Registration of Marks. This Course is specifically designed for Indonesia, so that we may be providing trainings in a flexible manner, taking into consideration its trademark system and the state of preparation for its accession to the Madrid Protocol.

To share the knowledge and experiences that the JPO has acquired since it acceded to the Madrid Protocol 16 years ago, JPO officials gave lectures on substantive examination practices as well as the on-the-job training on operating practices under the Madrid system. In addition, the trainees were given a chance to have discussions with patent attorneys regarding how to deal with its accession to the Madrid Protocol.

This Course is greatly expected to contribute to assisting the DGIP of Indonesia in preparation for its accession to the Madrid Protocol as well as smooth operation after its accession.
