Therefore, the generally accepted rules for the protection of intellectual property do not apply there.

In order not to have problems with doing business in Thailand, it is better to timely register the trademark.

There are considerably strict rules for using trademarks in this country. Violations and plagiarism are punishable within the state more seriously than by means of regular fine.

The registration process in Thailand takes from 6 months. It is carried out on a first-come, first-served basis, so the procedure can take several years. In order to avoid the above situation, it is necessary to:

  • Elaborate and prepare unique trademark;
  • Duly compile all the documents;
  • Contact representatives of the Department of Intellectual Property of Thailand.

Process of registering a brand name in Thailand

It is necessary to submit application to the Department. Only legal entity can do the foregoing, since legal address is required. As for individuals (if you are individual entrepreneur), only Thai citizens can file applications. The only option is to submit application through authorized representative in the country.

Registration takes place in several stages, as well as all over the world, namely:

  • Search for trademark in the Department's databases. The availability of similar trademarks is verified and the identity is determined.
  • Application is being submitted. The copies of the company's charter documents should be submitted together with the application. The application is completed in Thai. The image to be registered or other object is attached.
  • The application is carefully examined by the specialists of the Department. The possibility and legality of its use is determined. Upon a positive decision, it is published in the special edition for the period of 3 months.
  • A certificate of registration of the trademark is issued, which is valid for 10 years. Subsequently, it can be renewed.
