Ukrainian IPO Shortens Deadline for Publishing Information on Pending Trademark Applications

Oct 31 2018 - 13:30

On August 1, 2018, the Ukrainian IPO started publishing information on pending trademark applications in its online database immediately after sending a confirmation of the trademark application filing date to the applicant.

The information on pending applications is now published online within two months from the moment a trademark application is filed. Until recently, the IPO did not publish the information until at least six months after the filing.

Trademark owners are now able to monitor new applications soon after they are filed, ensuring timely enforcement of their prior rights.
