Trademarks

Services include Searches and name reservation at the Guyana Intellectual Property Office, Registration of International and Guyana Trade Marks, Renewals of Trademarks, Assignments, Change of Names, Change of Addresses, Oppositions, Court proceedings for Infringement of Trademarks and Passing off of goods.

Trademarks can be registered in Part A of the Guyana TM Register in respect of goods in Classes 1 to 34. And for services in Classes 35-45 in Part C only if they are registered in the United Kingdom and a certificate issued by the United Kingdom Patent Office. UK trademarks in other Classes for goods may also be re-registered.

Trademark Filing Requirements

For International (incl. Guyana) applications the following is required:

  1. Name and address of the company or person registering the Trademark
  2. Name of the Trademark
  3. 7 prints of the Trademark - device or word
  4. Classes 1-34 and specification of goods
  5. Authorisation to Agent in Guyana (Power of Attorney) in special format with original signature and stamp of Applicant (notarisation and legalisation not required)

After filing an application to register a Trademark, a number is issued. The application is processed for advertisement and publication in the Official Gazette of Guyana inviting oppositions. If there are no oppositions, the Trademark can be placed on the Trademark Register.

Part A of the TM Register - All of our unopposed Trademarks filed at April 2016 have been advertised. The process now takes a shorter time to obtain the TM Certificates.  

Part C of the TM Register can take 2 to 4 months.

 

To Renew a Trademark, the following is required:

  1. A Copy of the Trademark Certificate
  2. An Original Authorisation to Agent in Guyana (Power of Attorney) in special format (notarisation and legalisation not required) ONLY if the renewal is being done by an agent who did not register the Trademark in Guyana.
  3. It can take 1-3 months for the Certificate of Renewal to be issued by the Registrar.

To Assign a Trademark, the following is required:

  1. A Notarised Assignment Agreement
