Trademarks may, subject to payment of the related duties, be filed at the Intellectual Property Division, in view of their registration.

Once it is registered, the trademark is protected in Monaco for a period of 10 years, renewable indefinitely. This protection gives the trademark’s owner an exclusive right to exploitation since the latter has the right to prohibit third parties from using the filed and duly registered sign.

The application must be filed at the Intellectual Property Division. Application by post or fax is not allowed.

Where the legal conditions are met, the trademark is issued at latest within three months following the date of application.
