The Islamic Republic of Pakistan Joins the Madrid System

On February 24, 2021, the Government of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan deposited its instrument of accession to the Madrid Protocol with WIPO’s Director General, making it the 108th member of the Madrid System, which now covers 124 countries. The Protocol will enter into force for the Islamic Republic of Pakistan on May 24, 2021.

Starting May 24, 2021, local brand owners in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan can begin using the Madrid System to protect their trademarks in the 123 territories of the System’s other 107 members by filing a single international application and paying a single set of fees.

With its straightforward designation process, foreign companies and trademark owners can, from May 24, 2021, seek trademark protection through the Madrid System when selling their products and services in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
