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

The order of phases of application is as follows: examination, registration and publication. 

  1. Examination – the Norway Trademark Office will examine the application based on a number of factors namely formalities, classifications, clarity, descriptiveness, deceptiveness, distinctiveness and conflicts with other applications.
  2. Registration – The trademark office of Norway will perform the prosecution process and if no challenges or oppositions are received, the office will then issue the registration certificate.
  3. Publication – The trademark will be published in the Norwegian Official Trademarks Gazette.
