The Minister in exercise of the powers conferred upon him by

Marks Regulations 1993 and shall come into operation on 19th June,
1993.

Interpretation
2 (1) In these Regulations unless the context otherwise
requires—

"the 1974 Act" means the Trade Marks Act 1974 as it has effect
with respect to trade marks;

"agent" means an agent duly authorized to the satisfaction of the
Registrar in accordance with regulation 13(3);

"appropriate fee" means the fee prescribed under the
Government Fees Act 1965;

"form" means the prescribed form in the First Schedule;

"the modified 1974 Act" means the Trade Marks Act 1974 as it
has effect with respect to service marks;

"Registry" means the office of the Registrar-General;

"specification" means the designation of goods or, as the case
may be, services in respect of which a trade mark or a service
mark, or a registered user of a trade mark or a service mark,
is registered or proposed to be registered.

(2) In these Regulations, references to something being filed at
a place or with a person are to be construed as references to its being
sent to that place or person or made or left at that place or given or made

TRADE MARKS AND SERVICE MARKS REGULATIONS 1993

4

to or left with that person, or to that person being furnished with it; and
references to the filing of any thing without an indication of the place at
which or person with whom it is to be filed are to be construed as
references to its being filed with the Registrar at the Registry.

Forms
3 (1) The forms mentioned in these Regulations are forms
prescribed by regulations.

(2) The prescribed form of certificate of registration required by
section 21(2) of the 1974 Act and the modified 1974 Act shall be as set
out in the First Schedule.

(3) Where the form of any application, notice or other
document to be used for anything to be done under the 1974 Act or
these Regulations is not prescribed in the First Schedule the application
shall be made, the notice shall be given or the document shall be as near
as may be in the form prescribed in the United Kingdom for the
analogous provisions of the Trade Marks Act 1938 and the Trade Marks
Act 1938 as it has effect with respect to service marks and the rules
made thereunder: however, the Registrar may accept an application,
notice or other document which is not in the form required by this
regulation.

(4) The Registrar may direct that a form prescribed for a
purpose may be modified in such manner as he may direct for other
purposes.

CLASSIFICATION

Classification of goods and services
4 (1) For the purposes of trade mark registrations dated before
1st July 1975 and of registrations of registered users thereunder, goods
are classified in accordance with the Second Schedule except in the case
of a specification converted to the Third Schedule in accordance with
regulation 5.

(2) For the purposes of trade mark registrations dated on or
after 1st July 1975 and of registrations of registered users thereunder,
and for the purposes of any registrations dated before that day in respect
of which the specifications have been converted in accordance with
regulation 5, goods are classified in accordance with Part I of the Third
Schedule.

(3) For the purposes of service mark registrations, services are
classified in accordance with Part II of the Third Schedule.

TRADE MARKS AND SERVICE MARKS REGULATIONS 1993

5

Application for conversion
5 (1) Where the specification of a registered trade mark is
founded on the Second Schedule the registered proprietor may make
application to the Registrar in writing accompanied by the appropriate
fee for the conversion of that specification so that it may be founded on
the Third Schedule, whether with or without the striking out of goods
therefrom, but so that the registration retains its original date, and he
shall include in the application a request for the like conversion of the
specification of the goods of any registered user under that registration.

(2) After receipt of the application the Registrar, in accordance
with section 38(3) of the 1974 Act, shall send to the registered proprietor
a proposal showing the form which, in the Registrar's view, the
amendment of the register shall take.

(3) Two or more registrations of a trade mark in respect of
goods falling within the same class of the Third Schedule, having the
same date of registration, may be amalgamated upon conversion in
accordance with this regulation.

Proposal for amendment
6 (1) The proposal for amendment under section 38(3) of the
1974 Act shall be advertised by the applicant in one issue of the Gazette.

(2) Written notice of opposition shall be given within two
months from the date of the advertisement and shall be accompanied by
the appropriate fee, a duplicate of the notice and a statement in
duplicate showing how the proposed conversion would be contrary to
section 38(2) of the 1974 Act.

(3) The Registrar shall send the duplicate copies to the
registered proprietor, who shall, two months from the date of the
Registrar's letter sending such duplicates, send to the Registrar a
counter-statement setting out fully the grounds on which the opposition
is contested. The counter-statement shall be accompanied by a
duplicate, which the Registrar shall forthwith send to the opponent.

(4) The Registrar may then require or admit evidence directed
to the questions in issue, and if so desired by either party he shall before
deciding the matter, give the parties an opportunity of being heard
thereon.

Registration of conversion
7 (1) When a proposal for conversion of a specification in
accordance with regulation 6 has been advertised and has not been
opposed, and the time for notice has expired, or having been opposed the
opposition has been determined and a conversion allowed, the Registrar

TRADE MARKS AND SERVICE MARKS REGULATIONS 1993

6

shall make all entries in the register necessary to give effect to the
conversion in accordance with the proposal as advertised or the proposal
as amended after opposition or appeal thereon, and shall enter in the
register the date when the entries were made.

(2) For the purpose of determining the next renewal of a
registration the specification of which has been so converted the
expression "the expiration of the last registration" shall have regard to
the same date as it had, in accordance with section 23(2) of the 1974
Act, with regard to the registration before conversion.

GENERAL POINTS OF PROCEDURE

Size of documents

Registrar, all applications, notices, representations or other documents

the names of all the partners in full the Registrar may send to the firm a
written request to furnish him with a written statement of those names
and in such a case the Registrar may decline to take any further step in
the matter to which the document in question relates until the firm has
so furnished such a statement.

Service of documents
10 All applications, notices, statements, representations or other
documents authorised or required by the 1974 Act, the modified 1974
Act or these Regulations to be made, sent or left with the Registrar, or
any other person may be sent through the post by a prepaid letter.

Furnishing of address
11 Where an address is filed under the 1974 Act, the modified 1974
Act or these Regulations it shall be as full as possible other than the
postal address for the purpose of enabling any other person easily to find
the place of trade or business of the person in question.

Address for service
12 (1) The Registrar may require an applicant, opponent, agent,
registered proprietor or registered user who does not reside or carry on
business within Bermuda to give an address for service within Bermuda
and such address may be treated as the actual address of that person
for all purposes connected with the matter in question.

(2) Any registered proprietor or registered user or any person
about to be registered as such may, if he so desires by notice in writing
accompanied by the appropriate fee, where applicable, give an address
for entry in the register, and such address may be entered by the
Registrar.

(3) All applications for request for entry, alteration or
cancellation in the register of address for service shall be signed by the
applicant for registration or the registered proprietor or the registered
user, as the case may be, or by an agent expressly authorised by him for
the purpose of such an application, unless in exceptional circumstances
the Registrar otherwise allows.

(4) Any thing addressed to a party or person as aforesaid at an
address given by him, or treated by the Registrar, as his address for
service shall be deemed to be properly addressed.

(5) The Registrar, at any time that a doubt arises as to the
continued availability of an address for service entered in the register,
may request the person for whom it is entered, by letter addressed to his
trade or business address entered in the register, to confirm the address
for service, and if within three months from the date of making the
request the Registrar receives no confirmation of that address, he may
strike it off the register.

Agents
13 (1) Except as otherwise required by these Regulations but
without prejudice to regulation 9, any act required or permitted to be

TRADE MARKS AND SERVICE MARKS REGULATIONS 1993

done under the 1974 Act, the modified 1974 Act or these Regulations by
or to any person may be done by or to an agent authorised by that
person orally or in writing.

(2) In any particular case the Registrar may require the
personal signature or presence of any person.

(3) Any such applicant, person making request or giving notice,
proprietor or registered user may appoint an agent to act for him in any
proceeding or matter before or affecting the Registrar under the 1974
Act, the modified 1974 Act and these Regulations by signing and sending
to the Registrar an authority to that effect in Form TM 13, or in such
other written form as the Registrar may deem sufficient.

(4) Where, after a person has become a party to proceedings
before the Registrar, he appoints an agent for the first time or appoints
one agent in substitution for another, the newly appointed agent shall
file Form TM 13 in duplicate on or before the first occasion on which he
acts as agent.

(5) The Registrar may decline to recognise as an agent any
person who is proved to the Registrar or, on appeal, to the Minister to
have been guilty of conduct discreditable to an agent appointed to act in
accordance with this regulation, and without prejudice to the generality
of the foregoing the following shall be regarded as evidence of such
conduct:

(a) conviction of a criminal offence;

(b) having been struck off and not restored to the Roll of the
Court (other than for reasons which would not be
discreditable in a person who was not a barrister and
attorney);

(c) suspension for the time being from acting as a barrister
and attorney.

REGISTRABILITY

Marks subject to statutory restriction
14 (1) The Registrar shall refuse to accept an application of a
mark on which appears the words "Red Cross" or "Geneva Cross" and
representations of the Geneva and other crosses in red, or of the Swiss
Federal Cross in white on a red ground or silver on a red ground, or such
representations in a similar colour or colours.

(2) Where there appears in a trade mark or a service mark the
registration of which is applied for a representation of a cross in any
colour, not being one of those mentioned in paragraph (1), the Registrar

TRADE MARKS AND SERVICE MARKS REGULATIONS 1993

9

may require the applicant as a condition of acceptance to undertake not
to use the cross device in red, or in white on a red ground or silver on a
red ground, or in any similar colour or colours.

(3) In any case in which there appears on a mark any thing the
use of which by the applicant would not be in violation of paragraph (1)
or (2) but which may be likely to be mistaken for any of the things
mentioned in paragraph (1) or (2), the Registrar shall consider whether, if
otherwise he would accept the application, the acceptance of the
application should be subject to any amendment, modification, condition
or limitation.

Marks requiring particular consideration
15 (1) The Registrar shall consider whether to refuse to accept an
application for the registration of a mark on which any of the following
appear:

(a) representations of the Royal crests or armorial bearings
or of insignia or devices so nearly resembling any of
them as to be likely to be mistaken for them;

(b) representations of the Sovereign or any member of the
Royal Family or any colourable imitation thereof;

(c) representations of the Royal Crown or seal or of the
Royal or national flags;

(d) the use of any words, letters or devices in such a
manner as to be likely to lead persons to think that the
applicant either has or recently has had Royal patronage
or authorisation;

(e) a representation of the arms, or any flag or seal of
Bermuda;

(f) a representation of the arms or emblem of a city or town
in Bermuda or of a public authority or public institution
in Bermuda;

(g) the word or words "Patent", "by Royal Letters Patent",
"Registered Design", "Copyright", "to counterfeit this is a
forgery", or a word or words to the like effect.

(2) Representations of exhibition medals and awards that have
been granted to an applicant or his predecessor in business in respect of
the goods or services for which a trade mark or a service mark is
proposed to be registered may appear on the mark but shall not be
accepted as a registrable feature thereof; but representations of medals

TRADE MARKS AND SERVICE MARKS REGULATIONS 1993

10

and awards that have not been so granted to the applicant or his
predecessor in business may not appear on the mark.

Arms of city, etc
16 Where a representation of the name, initials, armorial bearings,
insignia, orders of chivalry, decorations or flags of any international
organisation, state, city, borough, town, place, society, body corporate,
institution or person appears on a mark, the Registrar shall consider
whether to refuse to accept an application for the registration of the
mark unless the consent of such official or other person as appears to
the Registrar to be entitled to give consent is filed.

Living persons etc
17 Where the name or representation of any person living or
recently dead appears on a mark, the Registrar shall consider whether to
refuse to accept an application for the registration of the mark unless the
consent of that person or, as the case may be, his legal representative is
filed.

Goods or services described on a mark
18 (1) Where the name or description of any goods appears on a
trade mark or the name or description of any services appears on a
service mark, the Registrar shall consider whether to refuse to register
such mark in respect of any goods or services, as the case may be, other
than the goods or services so named or described.

(2) Where the name or description of any goods appears on a
trade mark or the name or description of any services appears on a
service mark and (in either case) the name or description in use varies,
the Registrar shall consider whether to refuse to permit the registration
of the mark for those and other goods or services, as the case may be,
unless the applicant states in his application that the name or
description will be varied when the mark is used upon goods or services
covered by the specification other than the named or described goods or
services.

Preliminary advice
19 (1) Any person who proposes to apply for the registration of a
trade mark or a service mark in Part A or Part B of the register in respect
of any goods or services may on Form TM 1 or where he is also making
an application under regulation 93(1) on Form TM 2 apply to the
Registrar for advice as to whether the mark of which representations
shall accompany the Form, appears to the Registrar prima facie to be
inherently adapted to distinguish within the meaning of section 10 of the
1974 Act or the modified 1974 Act, as the case may be, in relation to

TRADE MARKS AND SERVICE MARKS REGULATIONS 1993

11

those goods or services or prima facie to be inherently capable of
distinguishing within the meaning of section 11 of the 1974 Act or the
modified 1974 Act, as the case may be, in relation to these goods or
services, and shall apply separately in relation to those goods or services
comprised within different classes of goods or services as set out in the
Third Schedule.

(2) The application shall be accompanied by the appropriate
fee.

(3) Notice of withdrawal of an application for the registration of
a trade mark or a service mark given under section 41(2) of the 1974 Act
or the modified 1974 Act, as the case may be, for the purpose of
obtaining repayment of any fee paid on the filing of the application shall
be given in writing within two months from the date of the notice of the
Registrar's objection.

APPLICATION FOR REGISTRATION

Application for registration and request for amendment
20 (1) An application for registration of a trade mark or a service
mark in Part A or Part B of the register shall be addressed to the
Registrar on Form TM 3 accompanied by the appropriate fee, shall have
affixed thereto a representation of the mark and shall be signed by the
applicant or his agent.

(2) If the application is made for or on behalf of a partnership
or a body corporate it shall be signed for in the manner provided by
regulation 9 but in either case it may be signed by an agent authorised
in accordance with regulation 13(3).

(3) Each application shall be for registration in respect of one
class only of the Third Schedule.

(4) A request under section 18 of the 1974 Act or the modified
1974 Act for the amendment of an application for registration may be
made in such manner or form as specified by the Registrar.

(5) In the case of an application for registration in respect of all
goods or services included in a class or in respect of a large variety of
goods or services, the Registrar may refuse to accept the application
unless he is satisfied that the specification is justified by the use of the
mark which the applicant has made, or intends to make if and when it is
registered.

Address for applications
21 Any application to register a trade mark and any application to
register a service mark shall be filed with the Registrar at the Registry.

TRADE MARKS AND SERVICE MARKS REGULATIONS 1993

12

Separate applications
22 (1) Applications for the registration of the same mark in
different classes shall be treated as separate and distinct applications.

(2) Where a trade mark is registered under the same official
number for goods in more than one class, whether on conversion of the
specification under regulation 5 or otherwise, the registration in respect
of the goods included in each separate class shall be deemed to be a
separate registration for all the purposes of the 1974 Act.

Representation of the mark
23 (1) Every application for the registration of a trade mark or a
service mark shall contain a representation of the mark in the space
provided on the application form for that purpose.

(2) In any application, the Registrar, if dissatisfied with any
representation of a mark, may at any time require another
representation satisfactory to him to be substituted before proceeding
with the application.

Additional forms and representations
24 Each application shall be accompanied by three additional
representations of the mark exactly corresponding to that affixed to Form
TM 3.

Cases of difficulty
25 Where a representation cannot be filed in accordance with
regulations 23 and 24, a specimen or copy of the mark either of full size
or on a reduced scale may, subject to the consent of the Registrar, be
filed in any convenient form.

Retention of specimen or copy
26 The Registrar shall retain for inspection by the public each
specimen or copy filed under regulation 25 and may refer thereto in the
register in such manner as he may think fit.

Series of marks
27 Where application is made for the registration of a series of trade
marks or service marks under section 24 of the 1974 Act or the modified
1974 Act, a representation of each mark of the series shall be affixed as
aforesaid, to the application form, and three additional sets of
representations shall be supplied therewith.

TRADE MARKS AND SERVICE MARKS REGULATIONS 1993

13

Transliteration and translation
28 (1) Where a trade mark or a service mark contains a word or
words in characters other than Roman, there shall, unless the Registrar
otherwise directs, be endorsed on the application and on each of the
accompanying forms bearing additional representations a sufficient
transliteration and translation of that word or each of those words to the
satisfaction of the Registrar, and every such endorsement shall state the
language to which the word in question belongs and shall be signed by
the applicant or his agent.

(2) Where a trade mark or a service mark contains a word or
words in a language other than English, the Registrar may ask for an
exact translation thereof together with the name of the language, and
such translation and name shall, if he so requires, be endorsed and
signed as provided for in paragraph (1).

British marks
29 An application for a United Kingdom trade mark or service mark
made under section 18(4) of the 1974 Act or the modified 1974 Act shall,
in addition to complying with regulations 20 to 28, be accompanied by a
certificate of the Comptroller - General of the United Kingdom Patent
Office giving full particulars of the registration of the trade mark or
service mark in the United Kingdom.

Search
30 (1) Upon receipt of an application for the registration of a trade
mark or service mark, the Registrar shall, for the appropriate purpose
specified in paragraph (2) or (3), cause a search to be made amongst the
registered marks and pending applications; and the Registrar may cause
the search to be renewed at any time before the acceptance of the
application, but shall not be bound to do so.

(2) In the case of an application for the registration of a trade
mark in respect of any goods the appropriate purpose mentioned in
paragraph (1) is that of ascertaining whether, for the same goods, for the
same description of goods or for services or a description of services
associated with the goods or goods of that description, there are on
record any marks identical with the mark applied for or so nearly
resembling it as to render the mark applied for likely to deceive or cause
confusion.

(3) In the case of an application for the registration of a service
mark in respect of any services the appropriate purpose mentioned in
paragraph (1) is that of ascertaining whether for the same services, for
the same description of services or for goods or a description of goods
associated with the services or services of that description, there are on

TRADE MARKS AND SERVICE MARKS REGULATIONS 1993

14

record any marks identical with the mark applied for or so nearly
resembling it as to render the mark applied for likely to deceive or cause
confusion.

Acceptance and objection
31 After a search in accordance with regulation 30 and after
consideration of the application and of any evidence of use or
distinctiveness or of any other matter which the applicant may, or may
be required to file, the Registrar may accept it absolutely, or he may
object to it, or he may express his willingness to accept it subject to such
conditions, amendments, disclaimer, modifications or limitations as he
may think right to impose.

Response to objections
32 If the Registrar objects to the application he shall send his
objections to the applicant in writing, and unless within six months from
the date of receipt of those objections the applicant files an application
for a hearing or a considered reply in writing to those objections he shall
be deemed to have withdrawn his application.

Conditions, etc
33 (1) If the Registrar is willing to accept the application subject to
any conditions, amendments, disclaimer, modifications or limitations he
shall send to the applicant written notice of such willingness.

(2) If the applicant objects to such conditions, amendments,
disclaimer, modifications or limitations he shall within six months from
the date of the receipt of the notice apply for a hearing or file his
considered objections in writing, and if he does not do so he shall be
deemed to have withdrawn his application.

Decision of Registrar
34 (1) The decision of the Registrar, at a hearing as in regulation
32 or 33, or without a hearing if the applicant has duly communicated
his considered objections or considered reply in writing, and has stated
that he does not desire to be heard, shall be communicated to the
applicant in writing, and if the applicant objects to such decision he may
within one month by making an application in writing accompanied by
the appropriate fee, require the Registrar to state in writing the grounds
of, and the materials used by him in arriving at, his decision.

(2) Where the Registrar makes any requirements to which the
applicant does not object, the applicant shall comply therewith before the
Registrar issues such statement in writing.

TRADE MARKS AND SERVICE MARKS REGULATIONS 1993

15

(3) The date when the statement is sent to the applicant shall
be deemed to be the date of the Registrar's decision for the purpose of
appeal.

Disclaimer
35 The Registrar may call upon an applicant to insert into his
application such disclaimer as the Registrar may think fit in order that
the public generally may understand what the applicant's rights, if his
mark is registered, will be.

Application for a defensive trade mark
36 (1) An application for the registration of a defensive trade mark
under section 30 of the 1974 Act shall be accompanied by a statement of
case setting forth full particulars of the facts on which the applicant
relies in support of his application, verified by a statutory declaration on
Form TM 11 made by the applicant or some other person approved for
the purpose by the Registrar.

(2) The applicant may file with the statutory declaration or
within such time as the Registrar may allow such other evidence as he
may desire, whether after request made by the Registrar or otherwise,
and the Registrar shall consider the whole of the evidence before deciding
on the application.

(3) Subject to paragraphs (1) and (2), these Regulations shall,
except to the extent that they are inappropriate or it is otherwise
provided, apply to applications for the registration of defensive trade
marks as they apply to applications for the registration of ordinary trade
marks.

ADVERTISEMENT AND OPPOSITION

Advertisement of application
37 (1) An application for registration of a trade mark or a service
mark required or permitted to be advertised by section 19(1) of the 1974
