Fee for Trademark Search

Conducting a search for trademarks that are identical or similar before submitting an application can help you make an informed decision. Should you proceed with the trademark application, or should you make adjustments to the trademark design before submission? Conducting a trademark search before application is a crucial and necessary step for the following reasons:

– When deciding to establish a trademark, you invest a significant amount of time, effort, and money in developing that trademark. If the chosen trademark is already registered by another organization or individual, the Intellectual Property Office may reject your protection request. Moreover, you might even be prohibited from using the trademark due to the prior registrant’s rights.

– The time from submitting a trademark protection application to receiving a decision from the Intellectual Property Office on whether to grant protection or not is quite long, typically ranging from 18 to 24 months. If your protection request is denied, you will lose the costs invested in the trademark and the waiting time will be in vain. Therefore, conducting a preliminary search can save you time and financial resources.

The fee to check the possibility before submitting an application for each trademark in one class is $50.
