UAE Trademark Office- POA regulations
The UAE trademark has changed the regulations regarding the requirements of POA's for trademark applications.
By: Jens Liesegang
This is to advise that effective from 1st April 2014, the UAE Trademark Office will not accept any new filings without submitting the original Power of Attorney sufficing the legalization requirements. Same regulations will apply for the opposition procedures, knowing that all opposition must be filed within 30 days from the publication date.
Hence, we invite our clients and associates to observe these regulations when sending instructions with priority deadlines or when sending opposition instructions as the same will be rejected for non-submission of the POA.
