ANNOUNCEMENT

South Sudan: Trademark reservation is now possible

Trademark applications in South Sudan started to be accepted by the Ministry of Justice in July of 2014, under the old Sudanese Trademarks Act.  However, due to a lack of a local trademark law, the Deputy Registrar at the Ministry reversed this process and started to refuse new trademark applications. Although all trademarks filed to date have been suspended until IP laws come into practice, to contour this, it is now possible to reserve trademarks with the Ministry. By doing this, reserved trademarks will have priority over posterior trademark applications when IP laws finally come into force. It is still unknown if, when this happens, additional fees will be required.
