The trademark should be registered in South Africa in accordance with all the rules of the law, and the foregoing is necessary for its subsequent legal protection. The Regulation on trademarks was elaborated in 1993 and has not changed since then. It accurately specifies which trademarks will be allowed for registration, and which will not.

In order to register trademark in South Africa, it should be necessarily represented in a graphic form. The image should be completely unique and not be similar to other trademarks. If your logo is similar or copied from the design of trademark of another company that has already terminated its operation, the registration will be refused.

The process of registering a brand name in South Africa

  1. Consultation. The stage begins immediately after filing of your application for cooperation. You send us the layout of the trademark’s logo, scanned copy of your passport and the application for registration of the trademark. In addition, you will need to issue the power of attorney for representing your interests by our lawyer for the duration of the registration process.

  2. Collection of documents. Based on the results of the data obtained earlier, we begin to contact various authorities and send requests for particular statements. Complete list of documents that is needed specifically for your company can be clarified with the lawyer of Law&Trust.

  3. Translation of documents. English is used in South Africa. Our employees provide professional legal translation of all documents and at the same time verify them for mistakes. Upon completion, each form is certified by the notary and documentation is sent to the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission of South Africa.

  4. Consideration of the application. The exact time for consideration of the application can not be calculated, because it all depends on the extent of the package of documents, as well as on the availability of queues. Experts scrupulously verify the logos for compliance with the regulations, and only after that they make decision regarding the process.

  5. Permission is issued for the period of 10 years, after the expiration of the above period renewal is required by means of payment of the fee. Trademark is also renewed for ten year. If entrepreneur for any reason does not use his trademark, then its operation can be suspended or completely prohibited by the decision of the members of the commission.
