Sudan Trade Marks Act Enters into Force in South Sudan

30 Jun 2014

JUDA - The South Sudan Ministry of Justice has taken a decision to be guided by the Sudan Trade Marks Act of 1969, relying on Article 198 of the Transitional Constitution of the Republic of South Sudan 2011, which states that "All current Laws of Southern Sudan shall remain in force and all current institutions shall continue to perform their functions and duties, unless new actions are taken in accordance with the provisions of this Constitution", a press release by Lysaght & Co. There is a draft Trade Marks Bill in existence which is currently before Parliament, and until this is passed, the provisions of the old Sudanese Trade Marks Act are being followed, and it is now possible to file applications with the Ministry of Justice. Since any trade marks filed now will be enforceable when the new law comes into force, it is recommended that anyone wishing to protect their trade marks in South Sudan should do so as soon as possible.
