Model Forms

The Assembly of the Madrid Union, at its thirty-seventh (21st Extraordinary) session, endorsed the recommendation of the ad hoc Working Group on the Legal Development of the Madrid System for the International Registration of Marks that the International Bureau make available to the offices of contracting parties a number of standard forms (until August 31, 2009).

The model forms are intended to reflect the essential applicable requirements under the Common Regulations. Therefore, they may require some adaptation to suit the particular needs of each contracting party. The International Bureau is at the disposal of interested offices with a view to adjusting such forms to their individual requirements.
