Deadline to Complete Trademark Applications

The Trademark Office in Kuwait has issued an official notification regarding all pending trademark applications on or before December 31st, 2010 that have already been examined. According to this notification, all requirements related to pending applications must be completed before July 3rd, 2011.

These requirements include settlement of publication fees as well as submission of missing documents (power of attorney and certificate of home or foreign registration/application, both legalized up to the Kuwaiti Consulate). Failure to complete the requirements by this deadline will result in the applications being abandoned.

In case this deadline can not be met for any reason, a letter of undertaking may be filed by the applicant at the Trademark Office agreeing to submit the remaining documents within 90 days from payment of publication fees.

This decision does not apply to pending applications that have not been examined yet and on applications filed after December 31st, 2010
