Trademark Registration Procedures

In order to apply, the applicant does not need to be a merchant or have a commercial enterprise. Real persons can also apply for trademark registration in their own names. A single trademark application cannot be made for more than one trademark. A separate registration application is required for each trademark.

Trademark registration takes place at the end of the administrative process carried out by TPTO upon the application and takes approximately 6-8 months. An application whose application has been made in full or whose deficiencies have been corrected later on and no objection has been made within the time limit or the objection has been definitively rejected is registered and recorded in the registry. The applicant is also given a “Trademark Registration Certificate“.

The protection period provided by the registration is 10 years from the date of application. This period can be renewed unlimitedly in 10-year periods, by applying for an extension from 6 months to the end of each 10 years.

If this 6-month period is missed, the protection of the trademark registration can be extended by paying the penalty fee for the delayed extension application within 6 months following the 10-year protection period.

The trademark does not have to be in use in order to apply for trademark registration. However, if the trademark is not used in any 5-year period after registration, the cancellation of the trademark will be decided.
