The General Secretariat of the Andean Community, in collaboration with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), has presented the Manual for the Examination of Trademarks in the Andean countries, aimed at improving the trademark registration process in the countries of the Andean Community.

This new version of the manual updates the one that had been in use since 1996 and includes recommendations, cases, and practical guidelines to enhance the quality and efficiency of the services provided by industrial property offices.

Diego Caicedo, the Acting Secretary-General of the Andean Community, emphasized that the manual is intended for officials responsible for trademark registration in the four countries but will also be useful for all system users.
