Saint Kitts and Nevis Trademark Registration

Registration
A trade mark can be registered in St. Kitts & Nevis pursuant to The Marks, Collective Marks and Trade
Names Act, 2000 which provides for local trade mark applications.
The following information and documentation is required:
1. name of the trade mark
2. one copy of the mark (unless mark is word only)
3. class(es) and specification of goods and/or services
4. applicant's name and address
5. Statement and Declaration of use
6. Power of Attorney (one witness) (notarised)
7. certified copy of priority document (if priority is claimed)

It usually takes about five months for the St. Kitts & Nevis Intellectual Property Office to process an application for registration. Paris Convention priority can be claimed. Once the registration is complete the Office will issue a Certificate of Registration.

Classes
The International Classification system is used. Multi-class applications are allowed.

Searches
In order to conduct a search the only documentation required is the name of the trade mark and one copy of the mark (unless mark is word only). The result can usually be provided within a week.

Renewal
A trade mark registration is valid for 10 years from the filing date after which it can be renewed for like periods. Two months before the renewal date we will send you an Expiry Notice asking whether you wish us to renew the registration or allow the mark to lapse. If the registration is to be renewed the only documentation required is one copy of the mark (unless mark is word only) and a Power of Attorney (one witness) (notarised).

The application for renewal should be filed within six months prior to the expiration date of the
registration. A grace period of 12 months, however, is allowed from the expiration date for the filing of the application for renewal upon payment of a late fee. After that time a new application for registration is required.
It usually takes two months or less for the Office to process an application for renewal. Once the renewal is complete the Office will issue a Certificate of Renewal.
If you do not wish to renew the mark please inform us so that we can advise the Office accordingly.

Abandonment
Please inform us as soon as possible if you wish to abandon your trade mark or allow it to lapse so that we can update our records and advise the Office accordingly. This will avoid us sending out unnecessary Reminder Notices.

ST. KITTS & NEVIS
Assignment

application to record the assignment in St. Kitts & Nevis.

It usually takes two months or less for the Office to process an application to record an assignment. Once the recording is complete the Office will issue a Certificate of Assignment.


Change of Particulars
