At last and after long time of waiting lasted for more than thirty years, the Libyan Trademark Office started issuing certificates of registration for accepted and published trademarks. The first certificate of registration has been issued on 25 May 2010.

The trademark Office has not indicated yet when they will be commencing issuance of all other pending certificates, but it is expected to be resumed shortly.

It is worth mentioning that all trademarks which have been accepted and published in the Official Gazette are considered to be registered trademarks if there was no opposition filed.

NJQ & Associates will take this opportunity to inform all its clients that we shall spare no efforts to follow up all accepted trademark applications whose certificate of registration are due for issuance.
