BOSNIA

Go to the Intellectual Property Office, or IPR, for information on how to register a trademark in Bosnia and. A trademark may not be inactive for the next five years after application, even though it is not required to be in use at that period.

Requirements

A local agent must submit a trademark application to the Patent Office located in Mostar. It is required to get a power of attorney notarized. A domestic registration is not required for foreign candidates.

Procedure

There is no search for previous trademarks throughout the application procedure; instead, there is a formal examination and an examination of distinctiveness. From the first file to registration or the first office action, it takes about three to five years. The trademark is published in the official Gazette following registration. Three months after the trademark application is published is the opposition period.

Duration

In Bosnia and Herzegovina, a trademark registration is good for ten years after the date of application. Ten-year renewal periods are available for the registration.
