Thailand Trademark registration
In Thailand the legal basis is the Trademark Act A.D. 1991. Trademark protection is obtained by registration.
A trademark application has to be filed before the Trademark Office by a local agent. A notarized power of attorney is necessary. Foreign applicants do not need a domestic registration.
The application process includes a formal examination, an examination of distinctiveness and a search for prior trademarks. It takes approximately 12-18 months from first filing to registration. Before registration the trademark application is published in the Trademarks Journal. The opposition period is 3 months from publication date of the application.
A trademark registration in Thailand is valid for 10 years and starts with registration date. The registration is renewable for periods of 10 years.
NATIONAL REGISTRATION: If you just want to register your Trademark in one country, it is sufficient to apply for a national registration at the local trademark office.
Duly note, if the trademark has not been used within 3 years from issue of the registration certificate or has not been used later for a continuous period of 3 years, it may be subject to cancellation
