JPO Conducted Training Course
On Trademark Examination Practices (Basic Program)

January 19, 2017

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 January 10 to 19, the JPO conducted the IPR Training on Trademark Examination Practices (Basic Program), targeting for the trademark examiners from various countries.

In the Course, 16 trainees learned about Japan’s trademark system, the JPO’s initiatives on trademark examinations, searching activities, and examination practices. They also conducted hands-on exercises and had discussions by using actual cases.

The JPO has high expectations that the trainees will be active in the field after going back to their countries.
