Trademark Registration Procedures
Our trademark attorney team follows Turkey’s trademark application processes from the beginning to the end. In order to apply, the applicant does not need to be a merchant or have a commercial enterprise.
Real persons can also apply for trademark registration in their own names. A single trademark application cannot be made for more than one trademark. A separate registration application is required for each trademark.
Trademark Registration Process;
- Filing application online
- Application is reviewed by TPTO
- Publication of the application
- Filing objections to the application,
- Examining the objections
- Issuance of registration of Trademark Certificate
- Rejection of the application
An application process may take about 6-12 months, if there are deficiencies they have been completed later. If an objection has been filed within the publication time the objection has been definitively rejected in order to record in the trademark registry. The applicant will be given a “Trademark Registration Certificate“.
The protection period provided by trademark registration is 10 years from the date of application. This period can be renewed in 10-year periods and unlimitedly, by applying for renewal starting from 6 months before the end of each 10 years.
If the renewal 6-month period is missed, the protection of the trademark registration can be extended by paying the penalty fee for the delayed extension application within 6 months following the 10-year protection period.
The trademark does not have to be in use in order to apply for trademark registration. However, if the trademark is not used in any 5-year period after registration, the cancellation of the trademark can occur by an IP court decision for cancellation.
