Kuwait: Original Registration Now Required for all New Renewal Applications

The trademark authorities of Kuwait have issued an official notification stipulating that all new renewal applications filed in this jurisdiction must be accompanied by the original registration certificate at the time of renewal.  A certified copy of the registration certificate can be used for the renewal purpose if the original registration certificate is not available.

The prior practice allowed the renewal application to be filed separately with the original documents submitted at a later date.
