How to register a trademark

Updated time: Jul 31, 2018 , 15:36 (UTC+08:00)

Step 1 Provide us with your trademark description, a soft copy of the trademark in JPEG format, and your company business registration (or identity for personal registration). At this stage, we can provide a trademark pre-submission search, which provides access to records of existing marks, to identify any existing marks that may pose a conflict to a proposed mark. The records, which may be paper, microfilm or electronic, should be organised to allow for ease in discovering potential conflicting marks.

Step 2 We will fill in all required documents and the application form, and submit them to the local authority of the country where you want to register your trademark within 1-2 working days. After that, a search of the trademarks records will be conducted and we will wait for 6 months, to meet the requirements (in case the same or a similar trademark has already been registered or been applied for).

Step 3 Your trademark will be published in the country’s Official Gazette Notice, so anyone can view it. If no objections are issued, you will get a certificate of registration for your trademark within 4-7 months, depending on the country and type of trademark.
