3. PROCEDURE AND TIMELINE

The duration of a trademark search is around 10-15 working days.

The duration of trademark application is around 14-18 months – from the filing date to the actual receipt of the registration. The process involves these stages (1) formal examination and publication in the Gazette (3 months); (2) examination as to substance (9 months) and (3) issuance of registration certificate of the registered mark (2 months). Kindly note that the term for registration process in practice normally takes up to several months longer due to the workload of the NOIP and the slow examination process by the NOIP’s examiner.

4. REQUIRED DOCUMENTS AND INFORMATION

– Name and address of the Applicant;
– List of Goods/Services;
– Specimen of the applied mark (soft version);
– An original Power of Attorney which is simply signed by the Applicant (our form in attachment) (Please be informed that a scanned/faxed copy of the Power of Attorney is acceptable upon filing provided that the original copy is submitted within 01 month from the filing date).
