Harare

Adams & Adams attended the 5th Session of the Working Group on the Improvement of the Banjul, Harare and Swakopmund Protocols held in Harare on 3-4 May 2016. The Working Group was attended by delegates of the member states as well as users of the Banjul, Harare and Swakopmund Protocols. The ARIPO Secretariat  highlighted its mandate to maintain and adapt the Protocols to the changing environment so as to be better suited for use by the member states as well as users of the Protocols. Discussions held related, amongst other things, to:

  • renewals of ARIPO patents, designs and trademarks;
  • domestication of the Protocols by the member states as well as more effective application  of the Protocols by the member states;
  • a proposal for an increase in fees for prosecuting ARIPO patent applications
  • the improvement to the ICT infrastructure to enhance effectiveness of the office and interaction between ARIPO and its users.
