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

The application will go through 3 phases: 

  1. Examination – The application must comply with respect to formalities, classification, descriptiveness, distinctiveness and clarity.
  2. Publication – The filing details will be posted online including the mark itself, goods/services involved, applicant’s name and address, date and number of application, information about priority claim, and the trademark’s representation.
  3. Registration – After the prosecution, and if no opposition was filed, the issuance of registration will come next.
