Approved on 12 January 2022 by the Singapore parliament, the newly introduced Singapore IP Amendment Bill will have a significant impact on the country's IP legal system. The main changes to trademark law include the partial acceptance of national trademark applications — this aligns with the already-accepted practice in place for international applications. Further, the time frame for reinstating lapsed trademark applications has been shortened from six to two months. These measures are greatly welcomed on the market, as they will make the entire application procedure at the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) much more efficient and business-friendly.
