The price for trademark registration in Cambodia includes our professional fees as well as the official trademark office fees for the trademark registration in Cambodia without opposition.
The trademark registration order for Cambodia includes the following tasks:
First, we check whether the trademark being registered is entitled to protection in Cambodia (absolute grounds of refusal). Not all trademarks can be registered as trademarks. For instance, merely descriptive terms for the respective goods and services may not be registered as a trademark.
To avoid collisions between your trademark registration in Cambodia and older trademarks we recommend to conduct a trademark search in Cambodia which must be ordered separately.

Once the trademark was registered in Cambodia we send you the certificate.
Trademark Application in Cambodia

Notarized power of attorney, copy sufficient for application, original must be filed within one month.
II. Application procedure
The procedure from the filing of the application to the registration of a trademark is usually 9-15 months, provided that the application is not objected to by the Office and no opposition is filed.

Procedure: examination, publication, registration
Nice - Classification
Simultaneous trademark application in several classes is possible
IV. Opposition procedure
The opposition period is 90 days from the date of publication of the trademark application.
V. Requirements for the use of the trademark
The trademark owner must file an affidavit of use between the 5th and 6th year after registration in order to maintain the trademark registration.
The revised filing requirements for the affidavit are the result of the COVID-19 situation and DIPR's initiative to improve workflow and promote automation through its online filing system. Under the new requirements, the following documents must be submitted:
A notarized power of attorney;
a copy of the most recent trademark certificate; and
A proof of use (if filing an affidavit of use).
Since a signed original declaration of use is no longer required, the domestic trademark agent will declare "use" or "non-use" on behalf of the trademark owner. Trademark owners should note that proof of use of a registered trademark in Cambodia is now required whenever an affidavit of use is filed.
These requirements apply to both domestic registrations and international registrations under the Madrid Protocol.

10 years calculated from the date of trademark application.
