Requirement for Local Agent in Cayman Islands Postponed


Although the new Patents and Trade Marks Law, 2011, came into force on December 7, 2011, the Government has now passed the Patents and Trade Marks (Transitional Provision) Regulations which provide that the date for implementation of the requirement to use a local registered agent will be postponed until March 31, 2012.

The Registry will cease to accept instructions from overseas agents or proprietors of patents and trade marks on April 1, 2012. Please see newsletter issue 1/12 for more information on the new law.

The reason for this short postponement is that the regulations which make provision for the application process for registered agents, namely the Patents and Trade Marks Regulations, 2012, (“the Regulations”) were just recently passed on February 3, 2012, some time after the implementation of the Law.
