Russian Patent and Trademark Office (RUPTO) gets more efficient

Apparently, recently it’s been taking Rospatent (this is proper name of RUPTO) less time to finish formal examination of trademark applications than it used to be – if previously the period was about 1 month, then currently I’ve been noticing lesser and lesser time span. Just a couple of recent examples of foreign trademark applications we’ve filed in Russia: it took Chinese trademark TRAVELHOUSE 10 days to get approved for entering substantive examination, while Tunisian trademark FLORIDENT and Taiwanese trademark FARCENT passed formal examination in Russia during 2 weeks.

We believe that this improvement was in particular achieved also due to the fact that we switched solely to electronic filing of trademark applications in Russia – no more snail mail problems.
