Issue summary: 

The definition of the Madrid Protocol and its associated regulations in the Trade Marks Act and regulations is a point-in-time definition. This means that the Trade Marks Regulations require updating every time there is a minor change to the Madrid Regulations.

Updating the definition to empower the TM Regulations to incorporate the Protocol and its Regulations as in force from time to time could improve clarity and reduce the need to make technical updates to the TM regulations.
