Period to Oppose
Third parties affected by the application can file an opposition within 30 days from the date of publication.
The period may be extended for 3 additional 30 day periods, upon motion establishing meritorious grounds and payment of the appropriate fees.
In Philippines a trademark registration is valid for 10 years and renewable for periods of 10 years. If the registrant fails to file the renewal on the due date, they still have a period of 6 months after the expiration date of the trademark.
Requirement of Use
There is no requirement of use upon filing of an application. However, applicants are required to file a Declaration of Actual Use (DAU) of the trademark during the third year from the date of filing or registration of the trademark. There is also a requirement of filing a second Declaration of Actual Use (DAU) within the fifth year from the date of registration of the trademark.
Failure to file the declaration of use within the periods prescribed shall result to the revocation of the application or to the removal of the registered trademark from the records of the office by the director.
