Prior registration searches

Once the trademark is chosen, it is advisable to request a search report from the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office in order to ensure that the sign is available. The price of this search report may vary depending on the identical or similar name enquiry for each of the classes. This should be consulted with the Information Service. The report will only cover trademarks and trade names registered at the SPTO. If the report is not requested, a search should at least be carried out in the Trademark Locator Service or in the Registered or Requested Distinctive Signs Look-up.
