Following the DIP’s Fast-Track filing system launched in April 2022 that expedites the examination process to six months from the filing date when a trademark application meets certain requirements, in January 2023 the DIP took a further step by offering an upgraded Fast-Track filing system to support emergency use of trademark that cuts down the examination process to just four months.
To be eligible for this new system, the application must strictly comply with the following requirements:
When proceeding with e-filing the trademark application, the applicant is required to execute a special request form for Fast-Track filing for emergency use of trademark, and submit it along with the above-required information and supporting documents. Then, within 15 days from the filing date, the DIP will notify the applicant by email whether or not the request for Fast-Track filing for emergency use of trademark is granted.
This new system is the ideal for trademark owners who have reasonable urgent needs to use their trademark in Thailand.
