At the 33rd session of the National Assembly Standing Committee in June 2019, the Vietnamese National Assembly ratified the Law amending and supplementing the Intellectual Property Law (issued in 2005 and amended and supplemented in 2009) (“the amended IP Law”). The amended IP Law includes 11 points of amendment/supplementation relating to patents, trade marks, geographical indications and enforcement. The amendment/supplementation aims to make the current laws and regulations comply with the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) that took effect in Vietnam on 14 January 2019 in which Vietnam is one of the contract parties.
