As you know, in order for Ukrpatent to start a formal examination, it is necessary to pay a fee for filing an application for registration of a trademark.
The deadline for payment of such a fee is up to two months from the date of application. Or the specified fee can be paid immediately with the submission of the application by attaching the original of the relevant receipt to the materials.
It is known that during the state registration procedure the trademark undergoes formal and qualification examinations, which the registration body of Ukrpatent has the right to, in particular, require the applicant to provide additional materials, if without them examination is impossible, or in case of reasonable doubt any information or elements contained in the application materials.
During 2020-2021, during the qualification examination, Ukrpatent will increasingly send applicants notifications of possible refusal to register your trademark.
