New administrative proceedings for the invalidity and revocation of Italian trademarks have been available since December 29, 2022, following a Decree of the Ministry of Economic Development dated July 19, 2022, No. 180, that was published on November 29, 2022.

These proceedings are expected to be a cheaper and quicker alternative to those before the Italian civil courts.
