Change of Practice for Applicants Outside Paris Convent...

As from February 1, 2017, the Icelandic Patent Office will demand a certified attest of a domestic registration according to article 33 of the Trademark Act no. 45/1997 in cases where the applicant is not a resident of a state which is party to the Paris Convention or the World Trade Organisation (WTO). It will also be sufficient to show evidence that the applicant’s company has operations in a member country of the Paris Convention or WTO or that an individual applicant has citizenship in a member country of the Paris Convention or WTO to comply with the requirements of article 33.1 of the Trademark Act. A list of countries that are members of the before mentioned agreements can be found here
