Cyprus is a signatory to the Paris Convention for the protection of Industrial Property and has also ratified the Treaty and Regulations of WIPO. As an EU Member State, Cyprus legislation is fully harmonised with EU standards applicable in trademark protection.
How to register trademark in Cyprus.
Carry out a search before applying to the register trademark to find out whether your trademark is already being used or has been registered.
Complete the application of trademark for the Cyprus Registrar. Normally, an application in Cyprus is submitted only by an Agent on behalf of any natural person or a corporation.
The Cyprus Registrar will thereafter appoint a filing date, issue a registration number and conduct a search in order to establish. Upon completion of the aforementioned procedure, the Registrar of Trademarks in Cyprus will either accept the proposed trade mark with conditions or without conditions or reject it.
If accepted with conditions, then the applicant may request in writing the reasoning behind the Registrar’s decision and have a right to be heard before the Registrar against such imposition by setting out the respective reasons.
If the Registrar accepts the trademark unconditionally or the applicant accepts the conditions imposed by the Registrar then the trademark is published to the Official Gazette issued by the Republic of Cyprus provided payment of the relevant publication fee has been completed. The Certificate of Registration is thereafter issued. It takes between 12 to 16 months to obtain a registration for a trademark in the normal course.
Renew of trademark registration.
Initial, the trademark registration is valid for a period of 7 years, and may be renewed every 14 years in order to remain valid. Failure to renew a trademark will result in its removal from the Cyprus trademark register.
