MARQUES takes part in EUIPO SQAP audit
EUIPO held the third audit of the quality of cancellation decisions on 1, 14 and 15 March 2023.
Roland Mallinson and Guido Donath represented MARQUES and were among 16 users from 11 user associations who took part.
The participants checked a sample of 32 cancellation decisions against the EUIPO quality criteria. They reported “excellence” for eight decisions, “compliance” for 21 decisions and “actions needed” for three decisions.
So far, 25 SQAP audits have taken place since they were launched in 2017. The SQAP enable users of the trade mark and design systems to contribute directly to improving the quality of EUIPO’s decisions.
MARQUES has taken part in the SQAP sessions since they began. The next SQAP audit will be on opposition decisions in June 2023, followed by one on design invalidity decisions in September 2023.
More information is available on EUIPO’s website here and on the SQAP page here.
