The UAE Trademark Office issued a memo, on 11.04.2021, allowing the late filing of the legalized POA for new trademark registrations. As per the new Memo, the POA is due for submission within 30 days from the initial application’s date. The grace period is final and not extendable. Previously, the legalized POA must be submitted along with the application.
Nevertheless, the new grace period does not apply on oppositions and appeals. Hence, for these procedures, the Power of Attorney must be filed with the application.
