Trade Marks

Trade Marks registration and protection in Nigeria is regulated by the Trade Marks Act Cap. 436 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 1990.

Applications for registration of a Trade Mark is usually made by the applicant or his authorised Agent to the Registrar of Trade Marks at the Trade Marks Registry. An application must be in respect of particular goods or classes of goods specified in the 4th Schedule of the Act (the same as the International Classification of Goods by the World Trade Organisation {W.T.O}).

If the applicant desires to register the same Mark for goods falling into more than one class, he must make a separate application for each class.


Patent applications in Nigeria are regulated by the Patents and Designs Act. An application for a grant of patent shall be made to the Registrar of Patents, signed by the applicant or his agent.

An applicant should within 3 (three) months of making an application for foreign priority furnish the Registrar with a copy of the earlier application certified by the Industrial Property office or its equivalent of the country where the earlier application was made.

The Registrar shall grant the application after proper examining and finding same to be in conformity with the law. After the grant, the Registrar is required to enter the particulars of the grant in a Registrar of Patents. He is also required to cause a notification of the grant to be published in the Federal Gazette.
