Syria: Changes in Authentication Requirements

October 19, 2010

The Trademark Office in Syria has recently modified the requisite formalities for the Power of Attorney. The Power of Attorney now has to be legalized. Earlier, a notarized Power of Attorney was sufficient.

Kindly note that the Syrian Patent Office has received recommendation from the Legislative Council requiring that the Power of Attorney – submitted with a patent application – be legalized. However, there are still no regulations as to when or how this recommendation will be implemented. 

Please note that Saba & Co. IP will provide you with updates regarding this regulation when it is officially announced.
