Algeria Joins the Madrid Protocol

Sol R. (Aug 27, 2015)

Algeria has acceded to the Madrid Protocol for the International Registration of Marks, transforming the Madrid System into a One Treaty System.

On July 31, 2015, the Government of the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria deposited with the Director General of WIPO its instrument of accession to the Madrid Protocol Relating to the Madrid Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Marks. The Protocol will enter into force with respect to Algeria on October 31, 2015.

Signatory to the Madrid Agreement since July 5, 1972, the country was the last of the 95 members of the Madrid System which was not party the Protocol.

This represents a milestone for the Madrid System and its users. From now on, all international registrations of marks will be exclusively governed by the Madrid Protocol. As a result, the filing and management of international registrations will be simplified.

Brand owners in Algeria will also benefit from this accession, gaining full access to the territories covered by the Madrid Protocol for international trademark protection.
