Procedure NameApplication for Certificate of Mark Registration
Description

Description

Mark may be a trademark, service mark, or trade name. Up on successful mark registration, the applicant is granted Certificate of Mark Registration, and publication of this registered mark in MoC’s Official Gazette. By this, applicant is granted an exclusive right to a mark, including production, import, export and distribution.

 

Not all marks can be validly registered, though. Marks that can be duly registered in Cambodia and the granted exclusive right are detailed in the Law on Concerning Marks Trade Names and Acts of Unfair Competition.

 

The Certificate of Mark Registration is a prerequisite for requesting for the exclusive right in importation of goods and services.
