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

The order of trademark application in Morocco is as follows: 

  1. Examination – All applications are examined according to:
    • Compliance to requirements
    • Classification of goods/services
    • Descriptiveness
    • Capability of the mark to be represented graphically
    • Deceptiveness
    • Conflict with earlier registrations
  2. Publication – Information about the trademark application will be posted online and will be published in the Trademark Gazette. This will allow the public to oppose if needed.
    • Mark
    • Applicant’s name
    • Application number
    • Application date
    • Goods/services
  3. Registration – Once the examiners approved the mark and there are no oppositions after the publication or the oppositions are dismissed, the trademark office will grant the registration certificate
