European Union Trademark

Registering your trademark in the 28 member states of the European Union with a single application is possible. This registration favors the protection of your trademark image throughout the European Union for 10 renewable years.

Some things to consider before applying for your EU trademark are:

1. Types of Trademarks
2. Products or services for which I want to use my trademark (Nice Classification)
3. What happens once I have requested my trademark online at Singular TM?

Publication and objections

Publication and objections

Once your application has been processed, your trademark will be published by the European Union Intellectual Property Office, where they will assess whether it meets the requirements to be a registered trademark.

In addition, other people may object to your application for a period of three months. It is important to seek advice during this term by experts who can defend you from possible oppositions, ensuring that your trademark is finally granted.
