Paraguay’s accession to the Nice and Locarno Agreements

On 31 May 2021, Paraguay deposited its instrument of accession to the Nice and Locarno Agreements, administered by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

The Treaties establish an international classification for the registration of trademarks (Nice Agreement) and industrial designs (Locarno Agreement).

Both Treaties will enter into force in Paraguay on 31 August 2021.

Review here more information about the international classifications.
