REPRESENTATION BEFORE TURKISH PATENT INSTITUTE/FOREIGN APPLICANTS

Real persons, legal entities or authorized representatives registered to the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office registry can have the competence to proceed before the Office. Legal entities should be represented by persons authorised by competent bodies. Applicants with neither residence nor principal place of business in Turkey must appoint an authorised professional representative according to the national law.

BASIC RULES FOR REPRESENTATION

All procedural acts should be performed by the authorized representative in the case a representative is appointed. All the notices submitted to the representative shall be deemed to be submitted to the represented person as usual.

REPRESENTATION AND NON-COMPLIANCE WITH THE BASIC RULES OF REPRESENTATION

The Office disregards a request from the representative if the representative of the applicant that has a residence or place of business abroad is not registered to the patent registry, if his/her registration is not anymore valid, if the applicant dismisses the authorized representative or if the represenative withdraws from representation. In these cases, a two-month period is given to the applicant to appoint a new represenative.
