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

The sequence of application steps in Estonia is as follows: 

  1. Examination – The trademark authorities will examine the application based on these elements:
    • Bad faith
    • Conflict with an earlier registration
    • Deceptiveness
    • Classification
    • Formality
    • Descriptiveness
    • Distinctiveness
    • Conflict with an earlier registered business name
    • Conflict with an earlier registered pharmaceutical product
    • Conflict with rule against marks that are exclusively derived from the product’s shape
  2. Publication – The application details are made accessible to third parties via print and online publication.
    • Name and address of applicant
    • Number and date of application
    • Good or services
    • Information about priority claim
    • Trademark representation
    • Colours
  3. Registration – The registration will be issued once the opposition period is over; either there are no challengers or the applicant overcame all challenges.
