Register your trademark in IRAN

Register your trademark

 
In most countries in the world, the use of a trademark will not give you any exclusive rights to that trademark nor any legal protection against unauthorized use of that mark by third parties
 
Only on the basis of a registration will you be able to take action against trademark infringement by third parties who use your product names, designs, logos or packaging without your permission. And if you do not register your trademark, you may even risk that at a later stage you will no longer be able to use that trademark because a third party has successfully registered it
 
Trademarkhost offers trademark registration services in more than 120 countries in the world. Please be informed that we strongly encourage our clients, prior to Trademark Registration, to perform Trademark Search of the trademark so that clients can make a well-founded assessment of his/her registration probabilities

Iran is a member of the Madrid Agreement and the Madrid Protocol. Trademark protection is obtained by registration. It can also be acquired by sufficient public recognition. There is no trademark protection for alcoholic beverages. Pictures of women and words which can be considered immoral are not registerable as trademarks. Foreign words must be translated in order to be examined for their moral integrity. Israelis or Israeli companies cannot apply for trademarks

A trademark application has to be filed before the Trademark Office by a local agent. A power of attorney authenticated by an Iranian consulate is necessary. Foreign applicants need a local agent and foreign applicants need a domestic registration 
 
Procedure
The application process includes a formal examination, an examination of distinctiveness, and a search for prior trademarks. It takes approximately 6 months from first filing to registration. The examination is followed by a publication of the application and then a publication of the registration of the trademark. The opposition period is 1.5 month (45 days) from publication date of the trademark application 
 

Duration

A trademark registration in Iran is valid for 10 years and starts with registration date. The registration is renewable for periods of 10 years 
 
Methods
NATIONAL REGISTRATION: If you just want to register your Trademark in one country, it is sufficient to apply for a national registration at the local trademark office. INTERNATIONAL REGISTRATION (MADRID SYSTEM)*: If you already have filed a trademark application or have a trademark registration in one or more countries of the Madrid Union (based on the Madrid Agreement and Madrid Protocol), you can obtain trademark protection by filing one single application, so called International Registration (Madrid System). *Note: The fees for an International Trademark Application (WIPO) will be calculated for each individual country or multiple countries. For a quotation please send us an e-mail with the name of countries where you currently have a registration and all preferable countries where you wish to extend your trademark protection
