Time limit for refusal of an International Trademark Registration in Vietnam

The time limit for a designated country to refuse an extension of protection under the Agreement is 12 months that is inadequate given the relatively extensive and lengthy examination process followed in many countries. However, under the Protocol, each Contracting Party may elect a period of 18 months to grant or refuse protection to the mark or notify the holder of the possibility of refusal.
