The Senate has approved the adhesion of Brazil in Madrid Protocol. From October 02th, 2019 it will be possible to file trademarks in Brazil through Madrid Protocol.
Only on August, the Brazilian Trademark Office will publish the resolution with the rules regarding the trademark application thru the Madrid Protocol.
We can affirm that in order to implement the Madrid Protocol, the Trademark Office is making changes on its systems. The trademarks used to take around 3 years to be granted, now the applications are being examined in around 01 year.
The Brazilian Trademark Office has not implemented the multiclass system yet, however, it is expected that it will occur for sure.
As soon as the new resolution with all the rules for Brazil is published by the Brazilian Trademark Office, we will let you know.
