Libya: Trade mark office re-opens

The Government of National Accord (GNA) in Libya is currently in control of the Trade Marks Office and the situation appears to be relatively stable. New trade mark matters are being accepted and certificates for cases filed under the old regime are gradually being issued.

Given the events in recent years, we expect that backlogs will remain for some time but we suggest that owners may wish to reconsider applications currently on hold and decide whether or not to proceed.
