Following the issuing of the original questionnaire, in November 2007, the International Bureau has taken the decision to redraft two of the questions contained therein, namely question No. 6, in Part III, and question No. 1, in Part IV. The offices of the contracting parties to the Madrid Agreement and/or to the Madrid Protocol were invited, in July 2008, to reply either to the redrafted questions or to the revised questionnaire in full.
Where an office, which had already replied to the original questionnaire, chose to reply just to the two redrafted questions, those revised replies are now made available below, along with that office’s earlier replies to the original questionnaire, under columns 1(b) and 1(a) respectively. Where, however, an office replied in full to the revised questionnaire, the entire set of replies to the revised questionnaire - and those replies only - are now made available under column 2.
Replies are displayed only in the language in which they were submitted.
