Trade Marks Act 1994

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

65Adaptation of entries to new classification

(1)Provision may be made by rules empowering the registrar to do such things as he considers necessary to implement any amended or substituted classification of goods or services for the purposes of the registration of trade marks.

(2)Provision may in particular be made for the amendment of existing entries on the register so as to accord with the new classification.

(3)Any such power of amendment shall not be exercised so as to extend the rights conferred by the registration, except where it appears to the registrar that compliance with this requirement would involve undue complexity and that any extension would not be substantial and would not adversely affect the rights of any person.

(4)The rules may empower the registrar—

(a)to require the proprietor of a registered trade mark, within such time as may be prescribed, to file a proposal for amendment of the register, and

(b)to cancel or refuse to renew the registration of the trade mark in the event of his failing to do so.

(5)Any such proposal shall be advertised, and may be opposed, in such manner as may be prescribed.
