Appeal to OSIM
According to art. 86 (1) of Law 84/1998:
The appeal procedure can be used for the same reasons as in the case of the opposition, when the right to the opposition was not exercised in time but when following a Provisional Refusal Notice the mark was rejected from registration.
The contestation procedure takes place in two stages:
the written stage (when the arguments are submitted in writing) and
- oral stage (in which the arguments are submitted to the OSIM Appeals Committee).
The appeal procedure is the last appeal that can be initiated before OSIM.
We can represent you in the appeal procedure both in terms of drafting arguments and supporting them before the OSIM Appeals Commission.
