November 17, 2015

The Republic of Gambia becomes the last country (and the 21st African country) to integrate the Madrid Protocol. By joining the Madrid System, related to the international registration of trademarks, from 18th of December 2015, it will be possible to designate the country in international trademark applications via the Madrid System.

The Madrid Protocol, which now counts 96 countries, allows applicants to obtain the protection of trademarks in members of the Protocol by filing one single application in only one language and through the payment of one set of official fees.
