Trademark registration process in Singapore
Registration process in Singapore may take about 12 months (if the application contains no deficiency and receives no objection/opposition).
The minimum filing requirements are: your statement where you request a registration, your name and address, a clear graphical representation of your trademark (with all dimensions if it`s a three-dimensional shape of the goods or packaging), a list of goods and services that you are registering in relation to your trademark (classified in accordance with the International Classification of Goods and Services), a declaration of your proposed use of the trademark.
The Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) will review your trademark application to ensure that it meets the minimum filing requirements.
If these requirements are met, the IPOS accords the date of filing and issues a Trade Mark number.
After that, the registrar conducts a formal search that includes geographical names, conflicting trademarks and conformance to the international classification of goods and services. The IPOS examines the application to determine whether the mark is registrable in accordance with Singapore Trademark Laws.
After successful completion of the those steps, the IPOS publishes the application and makes it available to the public. Any interested party is able to oppose the registration of the trademark within 2 months of the publication period. If the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore receives an objection from an opponent, the applicant will be notified and has to respond.
If there is no opposition, the IPOS issues a Certificate of Registration and the trademark would be granted protection.
The registration of a trademark is valid for 10 years from the date of application. Renewal of trademarks in Singapore is possible for 10 years at one time by paying the applicable renewal fee. The fee depends on the date on which you file for renewal. Renewal of registration made on or 6 months before the date of expiry: S$380 per one class.
