The recent implementation of new measures in connection with intellectual property administrative procedures in Peru as well as the improvement in infrastructure and services provided by the National Institute for the Defence of Competition and Protection of Intellectual Property (INDECOPI) has brought excellent benefits for the trademark community.
It is worth pointing out that in accordance with Article 15 of Legislative Decree 1075, it is possible to file powers of attorney as private documents in connection with applications for registration, applications for recordation of assignments, changes of address and mergers, apart from when the procedure involves infringement actions or desist orders for trademarks.
This means that it is no longer necessary to have powers of attorney notarised or legitimised by a Peruvian Consul (when the applicant is domiciled abroad). The applicant’s signature is sufficient and, in the case of organisations, a job title should also be included.
