Trademark Related Regulations Amended

The Taiwan Trademark Office announced on its website that the Article 11 of Regulations Governing the Implementation of Filing Trademark Applications and Services by Electronic Means has been amended on July 13, 2015 to comply with deletion of Article 4.2 of Enforcement Rules of the Trademark Act requiring that the applicant be exempted from submitting the original copy of proof for rights of priority and exhibition priority. What follows is the text of the amended Article 11.

Article 11
The documents of proof to be submitted in an electronic trademark application may be replaced with the electronic version thereof prescribed by the Registrar Office, except for the original, the certified copy, or evidence submitted pursuant to the Act or the Enforcement Rules of the Act.

For the documents of proof submitted in electronic form pursuant to Paragraph 1, preliminary showing shall be made that the electronic files are identical to the original or the certified copy.

Whenever it deems necessary, the Registrar Office may require the user to submit the original or the certified copy of the electronic files prescribed under Paragraph 1 for verification.
