What are the phases of application after a trademark has been filed in Belarus?

Application for a trademark in Belarus goes through 4 phases.

  1. The first phase is called “formality examination.” At this stage, the application is examined according to compliance with requirements.
  2. The second phase is called “examination” where the application can be refused by trademark officers on the grounds of proprietary rights or an earlier registration.
  3. The third phase is called “registration” where the mark is registered once it passed the first and second phases.
  4. The final phase is called “publication.” At this stage, information about the mark is published for third parties to see and file for the opposition if necessary.
