The UAE Trade Mark Office (TMO) is in a process of launching a new software to handle all trademark renewals. It is expected that the said soft will be operational by the beginning of May 2004 in order to issue renewal certificates.
As you know, renewal of trademarks had started at the beginning of 2003, but no renewal certificate has been issued since then. This is to remind you that:
- Renewal requirements are:
- Photocopy of registration certificate.
- Power of attorney legalized up to UAE Consulate if the application was filed by another associate.
- Filing Requirements:
- Power of Attorney duly legalized up to the UAE Consulate.
