The Process and Time to Register a Trademark in Israel
Unlike copyrighted works, trademarks require registration in order to grant legal protection for your brands as trademarks. After you submit the Trademark application, the Israeli Trademark Office will examine it within approximately 15 months if the mark in the application is eligible for registration under the Israeli Trademarks Ordinance.
If the mark in the application is deemed eligible for registration, the applicant will receive an acceptance letter. in this letter, the Israeli Trademarl Office will notify that the mark will be published in the Israeli trademark gazette for oppositions of third parties to the the registration of the mark in the application. the duration of publication for third parties oppositions is 3 months.
If there is no oppositions to the registration of the application within these 3 months, then the Israeli Trademark Office will register the mark in the Israeli trademark Registry and send a Registration Certificate to the applicant.
If the mark in the application is deemed ineligible for registration, then the Israeli Trademark Office will Issue an Office action against the application. The applicant then has 3 months to file a response to the office action. this deadline is extendable.
