Firm client Atrex Energy, Inc. received approval from a Canadian standards group for its remote power generators, which are used in applications for the oil and gas industry. This is the first-ever certification from the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) under its new FC-1 Standard for its high efficiency and fuel flexible ARP units. CSA certification is a rigorous standard of safety, and as such recognizes the safety and reliability of the technology in Atrix’s remote power generators. Many customers require equipment to have the certification, making this a major achievement for Atrex.

Atrex is based in Walpole, MA and its products offer low carbon, environmental solutions for essential off-grid power needs. To read more about the certification and Atrex’s remote power generators, read the full article featured in the latest edition of North American Oil & Gas Pipelines.

On June 19, 2014, Bill C-31, Canada’s Economic Action Plan 2014 Act, No. 1, received Royal Assent. The Bill contains a large series of amendments to Canada’s Trade-marks Act and will allow Canada to (among other things) accede to three key international treaties: (1) the Protocol Relating to the Madrid Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Marks (the Madrid Protocol); (2) the Singapore Treaty on the Law of Trademarks (the Singapore Treaty); and (3) the Nice Agreement Concerning the International Classification of Goods and Services for the Purposes of the Registration of Marks (the Nice Agreement).

The new regime is expected to come into force by late 2016 or early 2017. Those already owning or considering registration of a Canadian trademark should be aware of these new changes to Canadian trademark law. Read the full article here.
