9 Examination JPO
The examiner will examine whether it is okay to register your trademark. If the trademark registration is successfully approved, iRify International Patent Office will be notified of the “Grant of Registration”. On the other hand, if there is a reason why the trademark registration is not granted, a “notice of reasons for refusal” will be issued.
10 Report of Assessment of Registration iRify International Patent Office
If we receive a notice of a “Registration Assessment”, we will promptly report it to you.
If you receive a “notice of reasons for refusal”, we will consult with you about future measures such as whether to take measures to overturn the examiner’s decision or to abandon registration. If you give up your registration, we will refund the full success fee. iRify International Patent Office conducts rigorous trademark searches, so it is rare to receive a “Notice of Reasons for Refusal”.
