Practice Change to French Polynesia


A new decree dated on 23 May 2014 came into force further to the cooperation convention concluded between French Polynesia and France for IP matters. The decree implies two important changes:

French trademark attorneys do not need to submit a PoA signed by their clients for any trademark matters. This exemption is applicable for all the regulated legal professions.

In case of extension of protection related to trademark renewals, it is mandatory to get these trademarks formally reconfirmed by the local authorities before the publication date of the renewal. In some exceptional circumstances, it is possible to ask the French Polynesia TMO to postpone the reconfirmation request at a later date subject to state reasons for the same.
