Trademark Registration in Turkey
If you desire to register your trademark in Turkey, you must firstly conduct a trademark registration research considering the trademarks registered with the Turkish Patent Institute (TPI).
You may personally search trademark similarity from the TPI’s address at www.tpe.gov.tr but it is vital to know the Turkish Law and Turkish language to get an accurate result in such research. Therefore, you are advised to conduct a trademark registration examination by receiving service from the authorized Turkish trademark patent agent.
If the trademark is found eligible for registration in that research, it is required to apply for trademark registration without delay.
For Application for Trademark in Turkey, the following are sufficient;
- Copy of Trademark,
- Power of Attorney,
- TPI Application Fee.
The process of application for trademark is conducted by the professional patent firms by using the TPI online database within a few hours.
Trademark Registration Period in Turkey;
- 2 Hours for Online Application for Trademark,
- 4-6 Months for Review of Application for Trademark by the TPI in Terms of Form and Similarity
- 3 Months for Announcement of Trademark Eligible for Registration being a stage lasting nearly 7-9 Months as from application,
- Approximately 12 Months for Payment of Registration Fee for Trademark with an expired announcement period and receipt of Certificate of Registration.
This process may extend if the trademark is rejected by the TPI or in case of objection at the stage of announcement.
There is a right to file an action for nullity against final decisions of the TPI before Ankara/Turkey courts within 2 months following issue of the decision.
