In May 2021, the Chilean Senate approved the Madrid Protocol, paving the way for the implementation of the Madrid system by the Chilean National Institute of Industrial Property (INAPI). The change is good news for domestic businesses set on international expansion, as well as for foreign companies looking to invest in Chile.
