Trademark Registration Bolivia: General Overview
The government agency in charge of keeping a public record of registered trademarks and patents in Bolivia is the SERVICIO NACIONAL DE PROPIEDAD INTELECTUAL (SENAPI). This is the same institution that handles copyright matters. Denominative, figurative or combined Trademarks for goods and services can be registered in Bolivia. Goods and services to be protected in a trademark application should be classified in accordance with the International Classification of goods of Nice.
Rules on trademarks, patents, and copyright are provided by ruling law on Trademarks dated January 15, 1918. As well as by the Supreme Decree 20791 dated May 10, 1985, and supplementary articles 138-151 of decision 486 from the Cartagena Agreement. This agreement was enacted to protect the industrial property rights of corporations and individuals in this jurisdiction.
Bolivia is a member of the Paris Convention hence, foreign applicants should appoint a local attorney with a legal domicile in Bolivia to deal with applications and actions that may be issued by SENAPI regarding your application.
Upon completion of a successful application, a trademark certificate is granted for a 10-year term, renewable for the same period.
