Budget saving trademark registration with AAA IPRIGHT.

To protect your brand your company’s reputation, register a trademark in Chile.

Chile is a high-ranking country on the World Bank’s ease of doing business index, and it continues to attract commercial innovators. It is important to register your trademark in Chile in order to compete with other opportunity seekers. By registering your trademark in Chile, you ensure the income of your company and the omnipresence of your brand.

In Chile, a registered trademark can legally protect your brand and grant you exclusive rights to your invention for a period of ten years, which can be extended indefinitely.

We clarify what you’ll need and how to register a trademark in Chile.

1. Conduct a trademark search in Chile

Be sure to conduct a trademark search in the National Institute of Industrial Property (INAPI) database before submitting your application to see if your trademark has already been registered or if there are any similar-looking products with which you’d be competing. Since INAPI evaluates trademark originality and grants a timeframe for opposition claims, this is a crucial step

2. Appoint a legal representative 

A legal representative is not required for individuals to register a trademark; however, foreigners or a group of individuals may need to appoint one.

Generally, documents you’ll need to provide to register a trademark in Chile include: 

  • information regarding the mark characteristics and nature 
  • applicants’ information 
  • a signed power of attorney document, if required 
  • a pay order
  • if your mark is a label, present 6 samples of your trademark design. The size must be a minimum size of 5x5cm and a maximum size of 20x20cm

3. Submit your trademark application

To register your trademark in Chile, you must go to the INAPI office and submit your application.

4. Evaluation 

Applicants must pass the INAPI evaluation in order to register a trademark in Chile. If there are any errors or problems, INAPI will check your application and notify you. If required, the applicant has 30 days to amend or submit additional documents.

5. Publication in Official Gazette 

After the application is accepted, applicants then need to publish an extract of this application in the official gazette within 20 working days. The purpose of this procedure is to give other trademark owners who may consider their mark to be similar to yours the chance to file for an opposition claim. 

6. Final resolution 

If no opposition claims are filed, INAPI will issue a final resolution approving or rejecting the trademark. If the trademark is approved by the resolution, the applicant has 60 days to pay for and accredit the definitive rights.

Once you’ve paid the accreditation payment, you’ll need to pay a final fee for registration purposes. Applicants have another 60 days to pay the trademark registration fee.

If the request is rejected, the applicant can file an appeal with the Industrial Property Tribunal.
