WIPO Trademark

What is a Trademark?

A Trademark is an aspect of Intellectual Property which sets apart and protects your goods and services from other enterprises.

Is my Trademark protected Globally?

A Trademark Registered in Singapore will protect your brand only in Singapore. If you wish to apply for an International Trademark Registration, then you have
two options.

  • Option 1: Apply for a Trademark Registration in each country you wish to expand your goods/services.
  • Option 2: Apply for an International Trademark Registration with WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organisation).

A WIPO Trademark registration is a cost-effective way to ensure the protection of your brand globally before the commencement of business operations while enhancing the corporate value of your company.

WIPO Trademark Registration

WIPO is the administrator of the Madrid Protocol. It is a filing system through which a Trademark Application is registered in all participating countries in a single application. The Madrid protocol has 124 member countries as of March 2021. A full list can be accessed here.

In order to apply with the Madrid Protocol, ask our IP Agent to conduct a WIPO Trademark Search. This is an important step which will ensure that your desired mark is available for a WIPO Trademark Registration.

WIPO Trademark Search

To conduct a WIPO Trademark Search, visit our Search Page. All you need to do is select “International” when filling out your details. After conducting a WIPO Trademark Search and assessment, our IP Agent will present you with the findings. The second requirement of a WIPO Trademark Registration is that the mark must be registered in the home IP Office in the same class covering the goods/services.

Benefits of the WIPO Trademark Registration

● WIPO Trademark Registration is done with ONE simple application, making the process cheaper in comparison to registering in multiple countries internationally.
● Applicants are not required to have a service address in the countries at the time of application. This assures the protection of your mark in that country if you plan on commencing operations in the near future.
● Just like the WIPO Trademark Registration application, any changes, amendments, and renewals are also done with a single request.
● All applications are done in one language (English) and accept payment via a single currency (Swiss Francs).

Just like a regular registration, a WIPO Trademark Registration will protect your mark for 10 years, after which it can be renewed.
Trademarker assists you to undertake the search in the world database and make the application for you whilst you focus on developing your business. We provide professional support to enhance the global value of your brand.
