Trademark registration Dominican Republic - In the Dominican Republic the legal basis is the Industrial Property Law 20-00 of May 8th, 2000. Trademark protection is obtained by registration.
A trademark application has to be filed before the “Oficina Nacional de la Propiedad Industrial (ONAPI)” by a local agent. A power of attorney authenticated by a consulate of the Dominican Republic or Apostille is necessary. Foreign applicants do not need a domestic registration.
The application process includes a formal examination and an examination of distinctiveness, but no search for prior trademarks. It takes approximately 1 months from first filing to registration. After registration the trademark is published in a nationwide journal. The opposition period is 45 days from publication date of the trademark.
