E-Filing System Implemented


The Qatar Trademark Office has upgraded its system and undertaken the necessary procedures towards switching trademark filing completely to an online system.

The documentary requirements will be fulfilled online by uploading the required documents upon filing and submitting the originals within a month from the date of filing.

The earlier practice of filing trademarks using paper files in the presence of the original power of attorney has been discontinued. Thus, simple copies of the legalized POA, the certificate incorporation or the extract from the commercial register of the Applicant Company and the priority document (if applicable) suffice to fulfill the documentary formalities of trademark filing.

It is expected that the same system will be adopted for renewals, recordals and all other trademark related actions soon.
