How to register your trademark.

1. Carry out a search.

To ensure that your trademark does not infringe the right of others or earlier trademark, to find out whether your trademark is already being used or has been registered as a company or domain name by someone else, carry out a search before applying to register is important. You can do this search by yourself or use professional searches.

2. Apply via E-Trademark.

The application can be filed online, using the electronic application system e-trademark, or we can also apply to register the trademark with the form from The Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IPI), and send it by post, fax or email.

3. Examination on filing.

When registering a trademark, we must indicate the goods and services in The International Classification of Goods and Services established by the Nice Agreement (known as “Nice Classification”), groups all goods and services into a total of 45 classes. The list of goods and services cannot be extended once the trade mark has been registered, so make sure that you specify the goods and/or services as precisely as possible in your application.

The Registrar will start to examine to see whether there are any formal or substantive deficiencies in the application. In case they object your application, they will inform you in writing about the nature of the problem, you then have the possibility of remedying the deficiencies.

6. Publication on Swissreg.

If the Registrar do not object your application, your trademark will be published on www.swissreg.ch. Anyone can file an objection to the registration up to three months after its publication.
