ALGERIA: New requirement of use for trademark renewals

March 27, 2015

Algeria implemented new rules concerning renewal of trademark applications. According to the new regulations issued by the Algerian PTO, renewal of trademark applications shall be accompanied by proof of use from in the year preceding the renewal deadline.

Hitherto, there is no specific information about how the trademark owner’s may fill this requirement. However, according to the legal practices from other jurisdictions, the requirement of use might be completed through providing “evidences of use”, namely, labels, tags, containers and advertising materials from the product. Notwithstanding, it may be required only a bona fides declaration from trademark owner’s, stating its local trademark use.
