Change of Practice of PoA

The Iraqi Trademarks Registrar has recently changed its practice with regards to power of attorney and stipulates the following:

Original power of attorney should be submitted at the time of filing the trademark application. The phrases “And the POA is valid for three years unless you are notified with its cancellation by us” should be included in the power of attorney form.

The above new practice is effected as of 1 March 2014. However, local agents and lawyers are still arguing this matter with the Iraqi Trademarks Registrar and this stipulation might be waived at any time.
