Duration of procedure

The duration of the procedure depends on the individual case. Applications that are seemingly straightforward are examined within six working days and registered after payment of the filing fees and any class surcharges (Early trade mark examination and the chart). All other applications are examined generally within 5 months after payment of the filing fee and any class surcharges.


Within this time limit, we will either confirm that your trade mark is to be accepted for registration in the trade mark register or inform you of any deficiencies which you can subsequently remedy within a given time limit.
