New Power of Attorney Regulations

The Trademarks Registrar of Iraq has issued a regulation with respect to belated powers of attorney (PoA) on 17 November 2012.

The power of attorney must be submitted within 6 months from the date of filing the trademark application, otherwise the application will be considered to have gone abandoned.

The power of attorney must be legalized by the Iraqi Consulate abroad and then locally legalized from the following authorities in order to be acceptable by the Iraqi registrar:

1. General Commission for Taxes at Ministry of Justice
2. Legalization Directorate at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
3. Central Bank
