Legalized Power of Attorney Requested


The Bahrain Trademark and Patent Office (BTMO) has announced that only powers of attorney that are legalized up to any Arab consulate will be accepted. This means that simply signed powers will no longer be admissible in support of trademark, patent and design applications. The document must be submitted at the time of filing.

This decision will cover all trademark transactions, including renewal, assignment, merger and change of name.
