How does the UK registration process work?

The UK trade mark registration process in brief:

  1. You apply online via the Trade Mark Direct website;
  2. Our trade mark experts perform legal checks on your application;
  3. If your application passes our checks, we file your application with the registry;
  4. The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) confirms receipt of your trade mark application within six days;
  5. An IPO examiner reports on your application within two months;
  6. If your application is accepted, your details are published in the trade mark journal within three weeks;
  7. After three weeks, if no oppositions are registered, your registration certificate is issued.
