The EU trademark system consists of a single registration procedure that gives its owner an exclusive right in the 27 member states of the European Union. An EU trademark is registered by submitting a single application directly to the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) which is valid in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania , Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden.
EU trademark applications can be submitted in English, French, German, Italian or Spanish. The applicant must indicate a second language, which is one of the official languages of the member states of the European Union. This language is used in objection, cancellation or invalidation proceedings with an IPO in the European Union.
Four and five months, with no objection assumed.
The European Union Intellectual Property Office does not check the relative grounds for ex officio refusal. However, it is conducting a search in the EU and will notify the owners of similar previous EU trademarks that have opted to request that their trademark be published in the EU. An EU trademark applicant who has signed up for these search reports will receive a list of relevant past and conflicting marks. Furthermore, national research reports are available from a limited number of participating offices upon request of the applicant at the time of application, for a fee.
An EU trademark application may be opposed by any interested party within three months of the publication of an EU trademark application.
