Representation before the Estonian Patent Office:

A person with no residence, seat or commercial or industrial enterprise operating in Estonia must authorize a patent attorney as a representative before the Estonian Patent Office.
As from 1.04.2019, a Power of Attorney is no longer required. It is presumed that a patent attorney has the right of representation. However, in case of doubt, the Patent Office or the Board of Appeal will be entitled to request the patent attorney to submit a PoA within 2 months (non-extendable) after the request.
PoA requirements: original, on paper. Neither notarization nor legalization.
