There are four phases of a trademark application in Chile:
- Formal examination – The application is examined according to formalities, classification, clarity, descriptiveness, distinctiveness, deceptiveness, and conflict with an earlier registration.
- Publication – The details of the application are published and made accessible to the public including the mark, the name of the applicant, the country of incorporation, the application number and date, goods/services, priority claim, and representation.
- Substantive examination - Any opposition to the application will be examined.
- Registration – If the application passed the examination and prosecution stages, the registration is finally granted.
