The Trademark Office in Libya announced that, starting June 1, 2008, both the power of attorney and the certificate of incorporation or extract from the commercial register (documents which are required in support of trademark applications in the country), should be further legalized up to the Libyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in addition to their legalization up to Libyan Consulate in the applicant’s home country. Before this decision was taken, the only authentication required was the legalization up to the Libyan Consulate in the applicant’s country.
