Stobbs contributes to EUIPO Quality Assurance Panel
Stobbs contributes to EUIPO Quality Assurance Panel

Earlier in July, Stobbs continued its participation, on behalf of CITMA, in the EUIPO Stakeholder Quality Assurance Panel project, in which user associations are invited to perform quality-checking audits on EUIPO decisions.

An important stage in the EUIPO’s overall quality control procedures, this is a very interesting experience for us, as practitioners and users of the EUIPO system. It allows us to have input into the EUTM examiners’ decision-making processes, and provides an opportunity to gain a deeper insight into their work. This most recent session was the first to look at decisions on absolute grounds (the inherent registrability of the mark), rather than oppositions. See previous post here.
