After an application for registration of a trademark or service mark has been lodged with the Registrar of Trademarks in St. Lucia, together with the prescribed filing fee, the Registrar proceeds to preparing an Examination Report on the registrability of the mark in question.

The Examination Report is then forwarded to us (the Agents) with notes as to whether the mark has been accepted for registration and or why it has not been accepted. This report contains particulars of the mark to be registered, the class in which it is to be registered and the Number of the mark (if it has been accepted for registration). We then approve the Report and file same with the prescribed fee for advertisement in the St. Lucia Gazette.

A notice of the application of the mark is advertised in the St. Lucia Gazette. If after three months from the date of the publication of the advertisement there is no opposition to the application the Registrar then proceeds to issuing the relevant Certificate.

Registration is valid for fourteen (14) years and is renewable for further consecutive periods of fourteen (14) years upon payment of the relevant fee.
