  1. Examination – The application will be examined by the trademark authorities in terms of:
    • Formalities
    • Classification
    • Clarity
    • Descriptiveness
    • Distinctiveness
    • Deceptiveness
    • Absolute grounds of registrability
  2. Registration – If the application passes the examination phases, the trademark office will grant the registration. At this point, conflict with other applications or registrations has not been checked yet.
