A new Industrial Property Law No. 050/AN/09 was adopted by the Djibouti Parliament on 27th April 2009 and will come into force 6 months from publication of the enforcing Decree.

A law was also passed for the establishment of a new Industrial Property Office which will be known as "OFFICE DJIBOUTIEN DE LA PROPRIETE INDUSTRIELLE ET COMMERCIALE (ODPIC)".

Further updates will be posted as they arise.
