On April 17, 2018, the European Commission released its fact sheet on Key Finding of the 2018 Report on Turkey  along with the Commission Staff Working Document on Turkey 2018 Report (“Report”).

Chapter 7 of the Report is dedicated to the findings as to Turkey’s progress with respect to Intellectual Property acquis communautaire.

Turkey is praised for having a “good level of preparation in this area” and that “there was good progress on legal alignment with the EU acquis with the adoption and entry into force of the new Industrial Property Law in line with the recommendations made by the previous report”.
