To register a trade mark, send us the completed form by post or use the electronic application system e-trade mark.
Individuals and companies domiciled outside of Switzerland must use a representative in Switzerland. In general, we recommend retaining a specialist for your trade mark registration as trade mark law and practice is complex.
- Trade mark database: In the IPI's trade mark database, you will find all Swiss trade marks and trade mark applications, and have access to international trade marks with protection extended to Switzerland. In it, you can carry out an initial search for trade marks registered in Switzerland. However, please note that a search in this database is not sufficient to fully clarify whether there is any conflict between one sign and another. You can find more information on this in the help section of the trade mark database.
