The trademark’s expertise acceleration

 At present the expertise of applications on registration of trademarks takes in average from 1,5 to 2 years. According to the Article 4 of the Law of Turkmenistan about Trademarks…, the trademarks are provided with temporary legal protection from the date of issuance of the notification of acceptance of trademark into consideration by Turkmenpatent. Starting at that point, the applicant can give a warning to the trademark’s rights violator in regards to upcoming administrative and criminal liability including a penalty for aggrieving which will be available after registration of trademark in State register. However, at the request of applicant it is possible to accelerate the trademark expertise procedure, subjected to additional fee. In this case the decision about registration of trademark in State register will be given in a matter of 7-8 months after application’s filing date.
