EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends section 83A(7) of the Trade Marks Act 1994 (c. 26) as inserted by section 184(3) of the Legal Services Act 2007 (c. 29).

Section 83A(7) of the Trade Marks Act 1994 defines “trade mark agency work” for the purposes of section 83A(1)(b) of that Act which gives the person who keeps the register under section 83 power to make regulations which regulate the carrying on of trade mark agency work by registered persons.

The amendment to section 83A(7) extends the power of the person keeping the register to make regulations which regulate work done in the course of carrying on the business of acting as agent for others for the purpose of applying for or obtaining the registration of trade marks outside the United Kingdom, in addition to that work carried out in the United Kingdom.

An impact assessment is annexed to the Explanatory Memorandum accompanying this instrument and is available alongside this instrument on the OPSI website.
