What are the procedures?
When an application (which contains the minimum information required) is received, a filing date and application number is assigned and a filing receipt is issued.
The Minimum requirements for a filing date are -
- A request to register the Mark (completion of the prescribed application form meets this requirement),
- The name and address of the person requesting the registration,
- A representation of the mark,
- A statement or list of the goods and/or services for which registration of the mark is sought.
