Representative for Service

Publication Date: 1982-11-03

In order to ensure consistency throughout the Trade Marks Office in the treatment of requests for changes in representatives for service, the following policy will be enforced:

  • In compliance with Section 40(1)(a) of the Trade Marks Act, any request for a change in representative for service on a registration should be made utilizing Form 6 of Schedule II of the Trade Marks Rules and may be signed by registrant's agent on his behalf.
  • In the case of an application for amendment of a registration to extend the statement of wares/services which reflects a representative for service other than the one shown in the registration, the Office will consider this as a request to change the representative for service on the registration to the new one shown in the extension application.

A change in a representative for service on an application for registration pending before the Office may be made inwriting by the applicant's agent on his behalf.
