International Trademark Protection

The trademark granted under the provisions of the BIH Law is a territorially limited right which is only effective in the territory of BIH. The same trademark may be simultaneously protected in several countries, provided that it is internationally registered for each of the countries concerned.

The trademark holder from BIH may file an application for the international trademark application, as well as a request for the recording of changes in the International Register in accordance with the Madrid Agreement and Madrid Protocol. In that case, the fees and costs of the procedure are paid to the Institute, and international fees are paid directly to the International Bureau of the World Intellectual Property Organization.
