Filing trademark applications in South Sudan
Published on: 07 August 2014
South Sudan formally declared its independence from Sudan on 9 July 2011. The Republic of South Sudan was established after holding a referendum resulting in this population gaining their total independence. Following this, all existing trademark registrations in Sudan immediately stopped having effect in this new country, South Sudan, as of this date.
The South Sudan Ministry of Justice has recently declared that the first Sudanese Trade Marks Act remains applicable until the draft of a new Trade Marks Bill is finished and accepted by the parliament. Therefore, individuals and companies that require trademark protection in this new jurisdiction are now given the opportunity to file applications with the Ministry of Justice.
Regarding the fact that all trademarks will soon be enforceable under the new trademark law in South Sudan, it is highly recommended that trademark owners already begin to seek trademark protection in this new jurisdiction.
We would be pleased to support you in ensuring the protection of your trademarks in South Sudan and to answer any question that may arise following this change. For any inquiries, we invite you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or +352 276115-100.
