Trademark Search Facility
A trade mark is the means by which a business identifies its goods or services and distinguishes them from the goods and services supplied by other businesses.
Prior to applying to register a trade mark, it may be worthwhile to carry out a search to ascertain whether or not an identical or similar mark has already been registered or is the subject of a pending application. Any such mark will have priority, i.e. prior rights and this may be the basis for refusal of registration.
This facility allows users to search the Trademark Register and Database online. Online access to the registers and database are for information purposes only.
