The Expert Commission on Intellectual Property Protection of Brunei pays attention not only to the layout of the logo, but the main part of the consideration period is allocated for reconciliation of the documentation. Any mistake in compilation of the package of official documents may delay the terms of examination or lead to refusal, so that the assistance of professional lawyer is indispensable.

Trademark in Brunei can be processed according to the national procedure. The system implies the operation of new brand only in the territory of the country, but its protection is fully regulated by local legislation and the provisions of the Paris Convention.

Brunei: procedure for registration of trademarks

  1. The client applies to our company using the most convenient means for him: in chat, by mail or by phone, and there is also the possibility to contact the lawyer through call from our website. The counterparty may receive answers to all questions regarding the procedure for registration of trademarks in Brunei. At the same stage, the initial exchange of documentation takes place: the client receives the application form that should be filled in, signed and sent to Law & Trust along with scanned copy of the passport, as well as the power of attorney.
  2. Verification of the logo is also made by the experts of our company. The emblem can consist of various combinations of figures, letters, colors and pictures, but it shall comply with the Brunei regulations, namely: it shall not include elements of abusive, immoral or extremist nature and be unique in relation to the logos of other companies operating in the country.
  3. Collection of documents is carried out according to the register of required official documents for each specific case. All forms are translated into the official language of Brunei, checked for mistakes and inconsistencies, notarized and sent to the expert commission of foreign jurisdiction.

Consideration of the application by representatives of the commission for the protection of intellectual property may take up to 2 years. During this time our specialists track all stages of the examination and inform the counterparty about the successful passage of each stage.

After approval of the application, trademark is valid for 10 years, and if the owner of the trademark does not use it, the commission can cancel its decision and deprive the brand of legal force. Renewal of TM is also carried out by Law&Trust.
