When applying to register a trade mark outside Singapore, use this pre-filing checklist:

Are you planning to register a trade mark in multiple countries?

If you wish to register a trade mark in countries outside of Singapore, you may either make separate applications in the respective countries, or file an international application via the Madrid Protocol. The Madrid Protocol allows applicants to enjoy the convenience of obtaining protection for a trade mark in several countries through one application with a single office, in one language, and with one fee.

If you are filing an international application via the Madrid Protocol from Singapore, do you meet the following criteria?

Did you engage any professional assistance to prepare the submission of your trade mark application?

While engaging professional services to file your trade mark application is not a requirement, you may benefit from enlisting the professional help to advise if your trade mark is registrable.
