There are several possibilities to protect your trade mark abroad: you can register directly in the country of interest or at a regional trade mark office (e.g. European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) in Alicante), or you can register internationally through the Madrid System.
For an international registration you must first register your trade mark in Switzerland. Don’t miss the priority deadline: if you plan to register your trade mark for other countries using the Swiss priority date, we recommend that you apply for the international registration at the same time as the national registration (or, within 4 months at the latest).
