PoA Validity Term Declared

The Trademark Office in Saudi Arabia declared that the validity of the Power of Attorney (PoA) is now five years from the date of issuance, unless the duration on the PoA is stated unlimited or the POA is revoked.

The above directives are put into effect by a memo issued by the Ministry of Justice on March 15, 2016, but was implemented recently by the trademark authorities.

It is worth noting that a scanned colored copy of the PoA will be sufficient at the time of filing in support of trademark application. The original document may be submitted at a later stage.
