Delays for Myanmar’s New Registration System

IPAS System, the new online registration system for trademark applications under the new Myanmar Trademark Law, has been delayed, according to lawyers at Kelvin Chia Yangon Ltd. The Myanmar Intellectual Property Office had also been planning to introduce a six-month trial period where they would accept only the trademarks previously registered at the Office of the Registrar of Deeds and Assurances (ORD), or trademarks actual in use in the Myanmar market, with or without registration at ORD, to confer the rights and protection afforded under the new Trademark Law.

Declarations of trademark ownership can still use current practice by filling with the ORD, the firm went on to say. As of 7 February, there has been no new date for the introduction of the IPAS system.
