+ Conduct the search for availability of trademark before submitting an official application of trademark in Vietnam at the National Office of Intellectual Property of Vietnam

In Vietnam, trademark ownership is established on the basis that who registers first, the right of priority is given to that person (first to file). Annually, tens of thousands of trademark applications are file, and the idea of the same or similar trademark between the parties is common. Therefore, trademark applicants should conduct a trademark search before submitting a formal trademark application. The search results will show whether the Applicant’s trademark is identical or similar to another’s trademark registered for the same or similar products.

The trademark search is absolutely necessary to avoid the case that after waiting for the trademark application to be approved (at least 16-18 months), the result is that the Trademark is refused to grant trademark certificate. Then, businesses or individuals will have to remake another trademark.

Therefore, in order to assess the possibility of trademark registration, SB provides the trademark search services to help businesses and organizations evaluate the possibility of trademark registration. Basic information to know about trademark search is as follows:

  • Search time: 05 days
  • Search Documents: The applicant needs to provide us with the following documents to conduct the search:
  • trademark samples;
  • list of goods/services bearing the mark.
