URUGUAY

Uruguayan trademark registration law Nº 17.011 of September 25, 1998, serves as the country’s legal foundation. Registration is required to secure trademark protection under the “first-to-file” system.

Requirements

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

Procedure

A formal assessment, a distinctiveness examination, and a trademark search are all part of the application procedure. The entire process, from initial filing to registration, takes about 18 to 20 months. The trademark application is published in the Official Gazette (about two months after the application date) prior to registration. As of the application’s publication in the Official Gazette, there is a one-month opposition period.

Duration

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