Libya: Trademark Office Update and Issuance of First Official Gazette


TRIPOLI - Two years after its services were interrupted as a result of the civil unrest in Libya, the Libyan Trademark Office officially resumed its full operation by issuing its first Official Gazette, providing a comprehensive database of newly published trademarks.

The Trademark Office is currently accepting trademark search instructions, and receiving new trademark applications. As for the applications filed before the revolution, they have been assigned filing numbers.

In order to facilitate trademark registration procedures, the Trademark Office stated that the documents required for filing a trademark application are not necessary to be submitted when filing the application, they may be submitted within one month from the filing date.

These developments are a step in the right direction for expected trademark holders who seek to protect their rights in Libya.
