Much shorter processing times for trademarks

The processing of new national trademark applications at the Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH) now takes less than a month.

If your application is formally correct and we find no obstacles to registration in our examination, your trademark may only take as little as a couple of weeks to be registered.

If the application is incomplete or there are obstacles to registration, we will have to send you an office action and the processing time will automatically be longer.

Our processing times for applications have become shorter in the last few years: at the end of 2017, the processing still took an average of 2.6 months. We have made this improvement by developing the processing and our processing systems and by streamlining our activities.
