THAILAND

Intellectual property attorneys handle trademark registration and searches, submitting applications to the Department of Intellectual Property (DIP) in Thailand.

 

Procedure

  • Searching for trademarks and looking over the list of specifications for products and services that need to be registered.
  • An application is assigned an application number once it has been filed to the DIP with the necessary supporting documentation. The Registrar then reviews the application.
  • The trademark registrar will conduct an examination to determine whether an application satisfies the requirements of the Trademark Act (distinctiveness, not forbidden by law, availability) after it has been completed and submitted with all necessary papers and fees. Normally, the examination procedure is finished nine months after the date of filing.
  • A 60-day window during which third parties may contest a trademark registration application by submitting the required paperwork to the Registrar begins after a trademark application is published in the Trademark Gazette. The Registrar registers the trademark if no opposition is lodged within the allotted 60 days.
  • The Registrar issues a request for payment of official registration fees once the 60-day publication period has passed or the applicant has successfully overcome an opposition. Within sixty days, the applicant must pay the official registration fees. In Thailand, a trademark is protected for ten years from the date of filing (or the date of filing of a priority application), after which it may be renewed for an additional 10 years.
  • Before the ten years expire, a registered trademark must be renewed within ninety days. The trademark will expire if the registration is not renewed. It is necessary to pay significant official fees for every product or service when submitting the application for renewal.
