 3PROCEDURE AND TIMELINE

The duration of a trademark application is around 14-18 months – from the filing date to the actual receipt of the registration. 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. The process involves these stages (i) formal examination (1-2 months), (ii) publication in the Gazette (2 months); (iii) examination as to substance (10-12 months) and (iv) issuance of registration certificate of the registered mark (1-2 months).
