JPO Conducted Training Program
on the Substantive Examination of Trademarks for Vietnam

October 27, 2016

In order to support developing 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, Africa, and other regions, to provide training programs for them in Japan.

From October 21 to 27, the JPO conducted the IPR Training Course on the Substantive Examination of Trademarks for Vietnam. This training course was specifically tailored for Vietnamese trademark examiners, aiming to raise the overall level of professional expertise of trademark examination in Viet Nam.

A total of 10 trademark examiners attended this Course, and received the lectures on “Judgement of Similarity of Trademarks, Goods and Services,” “Regional Collective Trademark System,” and others. In addition, trainees had an opportunity to learn practical aspects of trademark examinations through case studies and discussions with JPO’s trademark examiners.

The JPO has high expectations that the trainees would play important and active roles in the enhancement of trademark examination capabilities in Viet Nam.
