As a follow-up initiative to the support provided by IP Key SEA on the drafting of trade mark guidelines, a ‘Training on Viet Nam's Trade Mark Examination Guidelines’ will be organised on 25 February 2022 to clarify any queries the users may have regarding the guidelines. The training sessions will also ensure that there is a consistent interpretation and application of the guidelines. With trade mark examiners better trained in examination, they will then be able to process applications more expeditiously following international standards and best practices, thereby providing businesses with more certainty and transparency. The improved quality of examination will also contribute to the high level of enforceability of trade marks protected in Vietnam.
