Registration of trademarks Republic of Moldova: Moldova is a party to both the Madrid Protocol and the Madrid Agreement. Registration is required to acquire trademark protection.


A local agent must submit a trademark application to the Patent Office. All you need is an unregistered power of attorney. A domestic registration is not required for foreign candidates.


A formal assessment, a distinctiveness examination, and a trademark search are all part of the application procedure. The entire process, from initial file to registration, takes about 18 months. The trademark application is published in the official industrial property journal prior to registration. Three months after the trademark application is published is the opposition period.


In Moldova, a trademark registration is effective from the registration date for a period of ten years. Ten-year renewal periods are available for the registration.
