SWITZERLAND

Requirements

  • Applicant’s information
  • A .jpeg file containing the trademark representation, if applicable;
  • A list in German, French, or Italian of the goods and services for which the trademark is claimed;
  • Documentation of the payment of the required fees

Renewal

The Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IPI) will register the trademark in the Swiss Trademark Register following the successful completion of the examination process. The IPI will post a trademark online at www.swissreg.ch following registration. The grant date is the same as the publication date. A three-month opposition period starts after publication. In Switzerland, there is no official grant fee specified for trademarks. The Swiss trademark registration is good for ten years following the date of filing. In Switzerland, trademarks may be renewed by paying an additional official surcharge fee within 12 months of the expiration of the validity term, but not later than six months after it has passed.

Duration

The usual time to receive a registration in Switzerland is four to six months, assuming everything proceeds as planned.
