Trade Marks Registration procedure in Montserrat
A trade mark can be registered in Montserrat either under the national system or per the extension of an existing UK registration to Montserrat. The latter has the advantage of attracting the wider protection offered by UK legislation. It takes 3 months for a trade mark to be registered in Montserrat under the national system and 3 weeks for a UK registration to be extended to Montserrat.
The registration application cannot be filed without an original notarised authorisation of agent (form attached). The IPO will not accept a photocopy of it. As the IPO is exacting about its correct completion and will not permit us to amend any errors it may contain, we suggest that you complete and send it to us by email for our review prior to its execution. The capacity of the person signing on behalf of the proprietor must be disclosed in the authorisation of agent. If a member of your firm signs on behalf of the proprietor as an attorney in fact, a certified copy of the power of attorney in their favour and a declaration (form attached) sworn by them are also required. If the mark is based on a UK registration, a certified copy of the UK registration is also required.
