The enterprise reviews and sends a response document, summarizing the decision of the National Office of Intellectual Property, and at the same time provides the basis for providing a trademark protection document to the enterprise’s brand.
From the date that it is received by the National Office of Intellectual Property, the trademark registration application is considered in the following order:
At the end of the substantive examination period, the National Office of Intellectual Property issues a notice of intention to grant or refuse to provide a trademark protection title and clearly states the reasons.
After notification of intention to issue a trademark, the applicant pays the fee for providing a trademark certificate.
