The Trade Marks Act,1999
43. Assignability and transmissibility of certification trade marks.—
A certification trade mark shall not be assignable or transmissible otherwise than with the consent of the Registrar, for which application shall be made in writing in the prescribed manner.
This clause deals with the assignability and transmissibility of certification trade marks. Assignment of certification trade marks can only be done with the consent of the Registrar. Consequent to the proposal to vest the final authority for disposal of application for certification trade marks on the Registrar, this clause seeks to make necessary change in the law by the substitution of the word “Registrar” for the words “Central Government”.
