Obtain a Trademark

Obtain a Trademark also known as Trademark Registration. Obtain a registered trademark to brand your business, products and services

Service Information

The Government of Grenada is promoting the registration of Trademarks and other intellectual properties. Citizens are encouraged to register their symbols, logos, and other visuals and texts used during their regular business transactions. At the end of this service, you will obtain a Registration Number for your Symbol, which will then be legally protectable. You will then be able to use the ® attached to your symbol, company name, or tagline.

Foreign businesses intending to do business in Grenada are encouraged to register and protect their trademarks by registering them with CAIPO

A note about Trademark: any individual or company can use a ™ or Trademark next to their symbol, name, tagline or other such assets, without the need to register them. Such items created by a business are ‘automatically protected’ provided you are able to prove that you own that symbol, and have been using it for a significant period of time over another entity that might claim ownership to such assets. However, as such matters can be challenging to prove or protect, it is best to register them and that way establish a clear date of ownership and easily invoke legal protection, even across borders where the product or services are traded.

Pre-requisites

None

Process Steps
  1. Register yourself online
  2. Download and fill the Trademark Registration Form.

    Note: It is not required for a local business to use a agent, and CAIPO will help in doing name searches and otherwise take all efforts in registering your symbols, labels, taglines, logos and other assets. Foreign business may use a local agent to aid in their representation and completion of service registration on their behalf, saving a few visits to the island.

  3. You can visit the CAIPO office that will help conduct a search. Essentially this step helps identify other previously registered trademarks that may resemble yours.
  4. A Trademark Officer will help conduct a quick search, and when no similar item is found to be registered, shall save the mark for you, with due fees paid, till such time that the registration is complete.
  5. A Trademark may be registered in more than one category. Cost of registration depends on the number of such categories into which such a mark is registered. It is best to obtain protection for your mark in as many categories as possible to ensure that your name or symbol is not diluted by their usage in a totally unrelated area of business, which could confuse your consumers in the market space. 
  6. Following acceptance, the Trademark and associated details are published in the Gazette and 14 day waiting period is invoked to allow the public to respond. When no such objection is met, the CAIPO office issues a Registration Number and a Certificate, and would then, as a matter of formality, take a second release in the Gazette to provide a thorough and complete opportunity for any one to respond.
  7. Following an intimation from CAIPO, you can visit the office to pick up the Registration copy, or have it mailed out.
