SPAIN

Registration of trademarks Spain is a party to the Madrid Protocol, the Madrid Agreement, and the European Union. In addition to the continental area, Spanish trademarks are protected in the Canary Islands, the Balearic Islands, and the Northern African territories of Melilla and Ceuta. Registration is required to acquire trademark protection.

Requirements

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

Renewal

Paying an official grant fee is not required. In Spain, a trademark’s validity duration is 10 years from the date of filing, renewed indefinitely for additional ten-year terms. Requests for renewal must be made no later than six months after the validity period expires and must be made six months in advance of that time. A surcharge must be paid.

Duration

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