New Directives on Submission of PoA


On June 7, 2015, the Iraqi Trademarks Registrar has released new directives stipulating the submission of a power of attorney legalized up to an Iraqi consulate abroad for all trademark applications whose filing date exceeded six months. Otherwise the Registrar will apply strictly article no. 16 of the Iraqi Trademarks and Geographical Indication no. 21 of 1957 which states that:

Where registration of a trademark is not completed within six months from the date of the application by reason of default on the part of the applicant the Registrar may inform the applicant, in writing, to complete the registration within the period prescribed in the regulation made under this law. Otherwise he shall be considered as having abandoned the application.
