Bahrain: Trademark Examination Update

November 25, 2014

In order to ensure proper workflow, the Bahraini Trademark Office recently requested applicants to provide missing documents or their applications will be declared abandoned.

Effective February 1, 2015, the TMO will update their trademark application form to make it possible to file applications with the documents within 3 months from the filing date.

In related news, the TMO also stated that sound mark trademark applications are now accepted. The implementation has yet to be announced; however, the TMO’s statement ushers an ambitious attempt of accepting nonconventional trademarks.
