Filing Trademark

Our Trademark Attorney will investigate the eligibility of the proposed trademark for protection in Mauritius before registering it. The qualified trademark attorney will verify the trademark before filing and pursuing the trademark applications at the Mauritius Intellectual Property Office.

  • The applicant’s name, address, and country of origin;
  • One copy of the suggested trademark, including word marks in regular font;
  • A list of products and services;

Classes List; Priority application number; country; and, if applicable, date;

A power of attorney must be ratified by the Mauritius Consulate, or in the event that one is not accessible, by the British Consulate, or certified with an apostille.

Mauritius adheres to the International Classification of Goods, which permits the registration of several trademark applications for a single trademark if the trademark is to be registered in multiple classes.

Renewal

The trademark is registered for the first ten years from the date of filing, and after that, it is perpetually renewed every ten years. In addition to being sought during the three-month grace period following expiration, and with the payment of a late renewal charge, the trademark renewal may also be requested as early as six (6) months prior to the expiration date.

If the trademark is not utilised for longer than three (3) years after registration, cancellation procedures based on lack of use may be taken against the trademark registration.
