Trademark Practice Guidelines Updated

IPONZ has updated the trademark practice guidelines with regard to amendments to trade mark applications and authorisation of agency requirements for mergers.

The Amendments to trade mark applications section now clarifies the requirements for requesting an amendment on a trademark application on the same day that the application is filed.

The Agents section now clarifies that an agent may only request for the merger of two or more trademark applications if they are the agent for all of the trademarks on the merger request.
