Practice of Trademark Office

The Libyan Trademark Office will resume business as usual soon. In effect any deadlines or priority dates which fell within the Libyan revolution will be taken in consideration.

The Trademark Office will start receive the search application from April 1, 2013 and filing new Mark applications will take place starting May 2013.

The requirements for filing a trademark application in Libya are:

1. A Power of Attorney. The power of attorney should be signed and notarized by the trademark owner and legalized up to the Libyan Consulate in the owner home country.
2. An extract of the entry of the applicant company in the Commercial Register (Certificate Incorporation) legalized up to the Libyan Consulate.
3. The Name, address, nationality, and business of the applicant.
4. 10 prints of the trademark.
5. If priority is to be claimed, a certified copy of the priority document issued from a country member of the Paris Convention should be submitted upon filing with other required documents.

Please note that a legalized copy of the home registration certificate of the trademark is no more required which was a must requirement in the past.
