When is the ‘power of attorney’ necessary in Japan?

In Japan, it is essential to submit the power of attorney at the time of withdrawal or transferring the application for direct applications or Paris Route applications. However, a power of attorney does not necessarily be submitted to file an application, for response to a Notice of Reasons for Rejection, or a request for renewal.

For international applications under the Madrid Protocol, the ‘power of attorney’ is necessary, to file a response to a Notification of Provisional Refusal, in addition to the procedures mentioned above.

In addition to the above a power of attorney is also necessary to file an opposition, appeal, and a reclassification application.
