Trademark Law to be effective from 1 April 2023

The Trademark Law enacted in 2019 will come into effect from 1 April 2023, according to the official notification. The Ministry of Commerce will receive filing for a trademark from the effective date.

The centers will be opened to receive trademark applications in Yangon city and Nay Pyi Taw. This law will promote investment and commerce by protecting the trademarks and interest and legal rights of the owners.

It also helps elevate the brand’s value and penetrate global markets, Yangon Region Chief Minister U Soe Thein said at an awareness event for the Trademark Law. Myanmar is a member of the World Trade Organization and World Intellectual Property Organization.
