The Common Communication gives a complete overview on how each national office, the Benelux Office and the EUIPO plan to implement the removal of the graphic representation requirement from EU trade mark law, as foreseen in the new EUTM Regulation.

It shows the new types of trade marks and the electronic file formats that each office plans to accept.

After the first publication, the Communication will be updated on a six-month basis to reflect the developing positions of the offices as they advance with the transposition process.
