Raluca Vasilescu

According to Directive (EU) 2015/2436 on harmonising EU member states’ trademark laws, states must transpose the directive into their national laws by January 2019. The exception is for the provisions on the procedure for revocation and invalidity, for which the deadline has been extended to January 2023.
