Portuguese Trade Mark

This offers protection in Portugal, and one application can cover up to 45 classes of goods and services.

Once an application is filed, it is submitted to a formal examination and then published online in the Industrial Property Bulletin. There then begins a phase during which those who consider themselves prejudiced by the possible grant of the registration may file oppositions.

When the opposition phase comes to an end (applicants may reply to oppositions), the application is submitted to a substantial examination. At the end of this process, the decision is reached.

The registration is valid for 10 years, starting from the date of the grant. This period is renewable indefinitely for further periods of equal length.
