Singapore Treaty on the Law of Trademarks

The Singapore Treaty aims to create an international framework for the harmonisation of administrative trademark registration procedures and addresses new developments in the field of communication technology. It is applicable to all types of marks registrable under the law of a given Contracting Party. The Contracting Parties are free to choose the means of communication with their Offices (including electronic communications); relief measures in respect of time limits as well as provisions on the recording of trademark licenses are introduced, and an Assembly of the Contracting Parties is established.
