CETMOS offers you a survey of trademarks in force or pending in the participating Central and Eastern European countries, which are considered identical or similar compared to your sign.
Before filing a trade mark application, such a search is always useful, in order to enquire whether the mark concerned is under protection or not. On the basis of the search report prepared under the CETMOS assistance, it is easy to decide whether to file a trade mark application via the national, international or Community route in order to obtain protection in the region.
Instead of contracting several points of sale you will profit from the one shop stop system, receiving one piece of information from the official databases of the participating offices (Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia), the search being carried out by the trademarks experts of the offices themselves.
The search results are communicated electronically to the customer, in a maximum of six years. The report contains detailed data of earlier trade marks, identical or similar ti the trade mark indicated in the search order. The results are assembled but in separate tables by countries. This information structure allows you to instantly detect potentially conficting trademarks. Also, although the language of the service is English, detailed information thereon can be obtained in a further 9 languages directly from the participating offices.
