Today marks the official launch of The Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys (CITMA) following the grant of the Royal Charter to the Institute in April and the formal issue of the Great Seal of the Realm. Keltie welcomes its new ‘Chartered Trade Mark Attorneys’ and congratulates the Institute on its hard work in securing this recognition for itself and its members.
Royal Charters are reserved for bodies that work in the public interest and which can demonstrate pre-eminence, stability and permanence in their particular field. The grant of the Royal Charter to the Institute is an endorsement of the high standards that the Institute has set for its members in qualification, regulation and education since it was established in 1934 and it brings the Institute in line with other notable professional bodies such as the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA).
