Abandoned Applications Due to Incomplete Documentation

The Trademark Law (Trademarks & Indications Law No. 21 of 1957 with Amendments), Chapter 2 Article 16 is now applied by the Iraqi Trademarks Registrar strictly.

Article 16 implies that where registration of a mark 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.

As per verbal circular, all the applicants who have pending applications under the series number 60,000 will be informed to submit the requisite documents within 7 days of the issue of the notice. Applications with incomplete will be considered as abandoned.

Applications filed under the above reference number should immediately complete the documentation.
