The new EU fast track trademark application procedure has proven popular already: in the week since its launch, 21.5% of all EU trademark applications have been submitted via “Fast Track”. This cuts the time it takes to get a trademark registration in half.
Fast Track is a free service offered by the European Trademarks Office (OHIM). It allows you to have your EU trademark examined and published faster. But it’s not just faster. It also means that your application can be processed smoothly, provided that you select your goods and services from the harmonised database, containing terms already accepted by OHIM.
The Fast Track is another step in OHIM’s ongoing efforts to a more efficient trademark registration procedure.
