Why has my trade mark application been declined?

Reasons your trade mark has been declined

Have you filed a trade mark application and received an Adverse Examination Report from the Trade Marks Examiner? This means the Examiner is concerned your trade mark may not be eligible for registration. You now need to take action to overcome the Examiner’s concerns.

Why may objections have been raised against your trade mark?
• your trade mark too closely resembles a pre-existing trade mark, on the Trade Marks Register; and/or

• is too descriptive of the goods or services that you are offering in connection with your trade mark.
