No Local U.S. Agent Required before WIPO


WIPO announced that the new requirement of the USPTO to be represented by a U.S. licensed attorney to conduct business before the USPTO, does not apply before the International Bureau of WIPO.

Users of the Madrid System are not required to be represented by a U.S. licensed attorney when conducting business with WIPO, such as, for example, when designating the United States of America, in an international application or subsequent to the international registration, when renewing an international registration or when filing requests for recording in the International Register in respect of this Contracting Party.

For further information, please refer to Information Notice No. 52/2019 here
