Regulation on Implementation Industrial Property Code Amended

The Turkish Regulation on the Implementation of the Industrial Property Code has been amended by a regulation published in the Official Gazette on 8 July 8, 2019 (No. 30825).

The requirement of notarised signature declarations for natural persons and notarised signature circulars for legal persons has been abolished for a number of procedures, in particular for withdrawals. This is the case for example, when

- renewal requests are submitted
- trademark and design applications prior to registration are withdrawn
- trademark or design rights after registration are waived
- oppositions before the Patent and Trademark Office are withdrawn
- appeals against the Patent and Trademark Office’s decisions are withdrawn

As a result of the amendments, rights holders and the Patent and Trademark Office now have significantly less paperwork to fill out in most procedures, which should accelerate prcedures under the IP Code.
