PROCEDURE

FAQ

Is there any need to use my trademark before I apply for registration?
It is not required to actually have had the mark in commerce, or to have the intention of using the mark prior to filing an application in Taiwan. Thus, there is no need to provide specimens to prove actual use.
Is Taiwan a member of the Madrid System and any possibility to claim priority in Taiwan?
Taiwan is not a signatory to either the Madrid Agreement or the Madrid Protocol.
The priority application must be filed in any of the WTO member countries within the last six months(The corresponding application should be the one that was first filed for the mark worldwide.)
What classification system does Taiwan use?
Taiwan allows for multi-class applications, and requires specific designations of goods and services that are based mainly on the international“Nice Classification” system.
If there is an existing U.S. trademark application that has been filed, the goods/ services can also be provided for our reference.

A trademark application must include the following elements:
Name of the applicant;
Address of the applicant;
