25. September, 2020

On 1 September 2020, Icelandic act no. 71/2020, amending the Icelandic Trademarks Act no. 45/1997, entered into force. The act implements the European Union trademark directive 2015/2436 into Icelandic law. It contains various new provisions and harmonizes the EU and EEA trademark systems, not only regarding trademarks but also regarding collective marks and guarantee and certification marks. Also, on 1 September 2020, a new supplementary Trademarks Regulation no. 850/2020 entered into force in Iceland, replacing the older Trademarks Regulation no. 310/1997.
