Previously, our system of registration in Grenada of trademarks requirred prior and current registration in the United Kingdom. In other words, a trademark could not be registered in Grenada without it first being registered in the United Kingdom. In May 2012 new legislation was enacted to permit the registration of trademarls without the need for registration in the UK. Consequently, many personas can take advantage of protecting their brands and logos when previously the costs of doing so was prohibitive given the relatively high expense and lengthy process which was part of the UK registration process.
There is also a new Patents Act which was enacted. Grenada is. Also a party to the Patents Cooperation Treaty allowing for PCT patents to be registered in Grenada.
