Forms for filing are available from any Trade Mark Office. There are also several publications available with instructions and forms for filing. It may be a good idea to consult with an attorney when filing for a Trade Mark.

If international protection is sought for a particular Trade Mark, applications of countries which are participants to the Madrid Agreement, upon obtaining a national registration, can apply for an international registration and the extension of protection into any other member countries.
The Madrid system of international registration of marks is governed by two treaties: the Madrid Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Marks, which dates from 1891, and the Protocol Relating to the Madrid Agreement, which came into operation on April 1, 1996. The system is administered by the International Bureau of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in Geneva, Switzerland.
