Evidentiary Documents Proving Prior Use in Opposition Proceedings

The Yemeni Trademark Registrar has stipulated that in an opposition filed against the registration of a published trademark application based on prior use, any party may submit an official notification from the Yemeni Chambers of Commerce evidencing use of the opposed trademark in the Yemeni market with all relevant information including the date of first use, the class number, indication of the goods/services for which the trademark has been used and any other documents proving legitimacy and prior use of the trademark and description of the mark which suffices for obtaining a ruling decision in favour of the party having previously used the trademark. This comes in compliance with Article 5 of the 2010 Yemeni Trademark Law 23 of 2010.

The Chambers of Commerce will nominate a committee to conduct market research and investigation to conclude prior actual use based on evidence from the market.
