Syria Withdrawal from the Madrid Agreement

By: Joe G. (Nov 01, 2013)

The Syrian Arab Republic has effectively withdrawn from the Madrid Agreement for the International Registration of Marks on June 29, 2013. Syria continues to be a party to the Madrid Protocol. Therefore, effective immediately, the following will apply:

- International marks registered up to June 29, 2013, containing a designation of Syria, will continue to have the same protection in the country as if they had been deposited there directly.

- The renewal of international registrations in which Syria has been designated will be subject to the payment of the amounts of the individual fee declared by the country.

By way of background, the Syrian Authorities had announced the withdrawal of Syria from the Madrid Agreement on May 27, 2012 based on Presidential Decree No. 179, Articles 1 and 2
