A trademark is a sign or form used to distinguish the goods, products, or services of one establishment from those of other establishments. In addition, a mark of sound or smell can be considered a trademark. A trademark application is submitted to the Trademark Office at the Industrial Property Directorate by the applicant if he is a national or resident in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Foreign applicants who are not resident in the Kingdom must apply through IP Registration Agents or law firms authorised by the Industrial Property Directorate.
The protection period of a trademark is 10 years from the date of application in the Kingdom of Bahrain. If the proprietor wishes to continue with protection for several similar periods, a renewal application can be filed during the last year of each protection period.
