Thailand: Amendments to Trademark Act Effective July 28, 2016

Amendments to Thailand’s Trademark Act became effective on July 28, 2016.  They introduce a number of changes that will set the stage for Thailand to accede to the Madrid Protocol in 2016.  The changes also reduce the opposition period from 90 days to 60 days from the publication date of the application.

The new official fee for filing a trademark application is now THB 1,000 per one item up to five items, and from the 6th item THB 9,000 per class.  The official registration fee is now THB 600 per item of up to five items, and from the 6th item THB 5,400 per class.  There is no publication fee.
