(to file a trademark in Argentina)

– Name and address of applicant 

– Trademark, labels

– Specification of goods or services

– Power of attorney legalized by “Apostille.” If your country does not have Apostille it must be legalized by the Argentinean Consulate

– Certified copy of the first filed foreign application (when claiming priority)

STEP by STEP: trademark prosecution in Argentina

Generally, once the trademark application is filed, its official publication for oppositions is ordered; within 30 days after such publication, the Registrar determines the existence of previous similar trademarks. 

If neither oppositions are filed nor confusingly similar prior records or other absolute grounds for rejection are found, registration is granted. 

However, if an opposition is filed, the Trademark Office gives the applicant three month-time limit as of the date of notification to obtain the withdrawal of such opposition. 

Therefore, if there are no obstacles, it takes approximately 18 months to obtain the trademark’s Registration Certificate.
