The Brazilian Industrial Property Office (BPTO) recently published the availability of registration certificates for trademark applications filed in Brazil using the Madrid Protocol.
The certificates will be available in weekly batches published on the same date of the publication of the BPTO Official Gazette. The issuance of the certificates will follow a chronological order based on the date of the granting of the trademark registration.
After the BPTO issues all the pending registration certificates for applications made using the Madrid Protocol, these applications will follow the regular BPTO rule for issuance of trademarks certificates, that is, sixty days after the publication of the granting of the trademark.
The first certificates were made available on march 22, 2022.
