CTM CHANGES FOR 2007 ACCESSION STATES


OHIM has highlighted the changes made in the field of Community trade marks and registered Community designs to facilitate the accession of Bulgaria and Romania to the EU on 1 January 2007.

These are:

*the availability of CTM and RCD application forms in Bulgarian and Romanian;
*changes to other forms with regard to languages;
*the OHIM vademecum (otherwise known as bulletin) will be available in the two new languages;
*so will the headings of the Nice Agreement;
*there are also various changes to some of the OHIM webpages.

The IPKat says that, if you intend to trade in Bulgaria or Romania, the CTM and RCD will now be even better value.
