The Madrid System for the International Registration of Marks provides a one-stop solution for registering and managing marks worldwide, allowing the trademark owner to file one application in one language, and to pay one set of fees to protect mark in up to 118 countries.
- Convenient - File a single application in one language, and pay one set of fees to apply for trademark protection in multiple territories; manage your brand portfolio through a centralized system, and easily expand protection into new markets.
- Global -Register and manage your trademark in the territories of the Madrid System, representing over 80% of world trade.
- Cost-effective -Save time and money by filing one application, rather than a bundle of national applications; no need to pay for translations or hire a representative in each country.
You can file an international application with IPOPHL if:
- you're a national of the Philippines
- you are domiciled in the Philippines
- you have a real and effective industrial or commercial establishment in the Philippines
