The Bill was passed on 12 January 2022 and the Intellectual Property (Amendment) Act 2022 (the “Amendments Act”) will be coming into effect in Singapore on 29 April 2022. The Amendments Act outlines the changes in procedures and fees for patents, trademarks, registered designs and plant varieties protection.
