Benefit from applying for international protection for your Swiss trade marks and trade mark applications online – you don't need to register. If you wish to obtain further benefits, we can open a user account for you.
You can easily submit applications for the international registration of your Swiss trade mark or trade mark application online (in German, French, or Italian only). The details of the basic trade mark will be carried over directly from the Swiss trade mark register, and you will be taken through the registration process step by step. You can save your application at any point and continue with the registration at a later time. Attachments can be uploaded directly.
You do not need to register to use this service. However, if you have a user account, you can view all your open and submitted applications at all times (User > My Submissions).
You can open the application directly via the Trade Mark Database. On your trade mark or trade mark application entry in the Database, click on ‘Protect internationally’. Please note that applications can only be submitted in German, French or Italian. If you are logged in to your user account, you can also access the application for international registration via the menu.
Good to know: applications for international registration can also be submitted at any time by post or email.
