ERBIL – After the stoppage in operations occurred in the Trademark Office in Erbil late November, it has been announced during the middle of December that operations are partially resumed.
It is possible to file new applications, but examination will be postponed until further notice; however, examination will proceed as normal for the applications filed prior to the halt.
Further, the official fees are expected to increase by 40% and will take effect the beginning of 2017. The new fees had been proposed by the trademark authorities in August 2016 and published in October 2017 though no action has been taken to implement the same.
