Doing business in Thailand? Here’s the guide for the Thailand trademark registration.
If you’re planning to sell your goods in Thailand, it’s always a good idea to register a Thai trademark to make sure you get the maximum protection for your brand name and logo. It’s true that the entire process takes a bit of time. Some companies don’t even bother, because Thai law generally recognizes foreign trademarks anyway.
But the protection you get for your trademark is actually rather limited if you haven’t registered it officially in Thailand. You only get the best protection once you’re officially registered. Fortunately, that protection starts from the very day you submit your trademark application.
As the applicant, you need to provide the following documents for your application:
Thailand follows the 10th edition of the Nice Classification system, with 34 different classifications for goods, plus 8 for services. These classifications can be rather specific. One class covers chemicals used in industry and agriculture, another class covers paints and varnishes protect against rust and wood deterioration, and there’s another class for industrial greases and oils.
You can only apply a trademark for a single class. You need a separate application for each extra class if you plan on using a multi-class trademark.
You don’t have to do this yourself, especially if you’re a foreigner. Everything’s a lot easier if you simply let an experienced trademark agent submit the trademark application for you.
