The IP Office of Montenegro has published a draft Regulation stated that the deadline for re-filing pending Serbian cases will be extended from 28 November 2008 to 28 May 2009.

Furthermore, we understand that International Registrations designating Serbia, and filed between 3 June 2006 and 4 December 2006, will be automatically extended to Montenegro, provided that the Serbian authorities have confirmed that the International Registration is in force in Serbia.

Please note that these amendments are not yet officially confirmed and published. Further information will be published on our website as soon as it has been received.
