Issuing of Notices of Deficiency

With effect from 19 February 2010, if the application fees of trade mark applications have not been paid at the time of filing, the Trade Marks Registry will issue the notices of deficiency in respect of the non-payment of application fees first. If the application fees are paid within the prescribed period, the Trade Marks Registry will process the applications and if there are other deficiencies in respect of the applications, they will issue further notices of deficiency as required. If payment is not paid within the prescribed period, the applications concerned will be treated as abandoned.
