How can I register as a Trademark Agent?

Trademark Agents who register for a Prepayment Account automatically receive discounts as they earn Status Points. Registering as a Trademark Agent is a simple five step process:

  1. Fill out the Trademark Agent application form on our secured website . This link will be accessible once the Clearinghouse has launched on March 26.
  2. The Clearinghouse will verify the data you entered:
    1. Check whether you or your company does not appear on the Specially Designated Nationals list (SDN list) *
    2. Check your VAT number if applicable
  3. If step 2 was successful, you will receive a confirmation e-mail, containing your user name and temporary password.
  4. The first time you login, we ask you to choose a new and final password to replace the temporary one. You can now download two documents:
    1. - your personalized Trademark Agent contract. Please print and sign this and then upload it again.
    2. - the pro-forma invoice, listing all the payment details needed for your wire transfer of the prepayment deposit.
  5. Once we’ve received the signed contract as well as the prepayment deposit, you’re ready to go!
*As part of its enforcement efforts, The US Office of Foreign Assets Control publishes a list of individuals and companies owned or controlled by, or acting for or on behalf of, targeted countries. It also lists individuals, groups, and entities, such as terrorists and narcotics traffickers designated under programs that are not country-specific. Collectively, such individuals and companies are called "Specially Designated Nationals" or "SDNs." Their assets are blocked and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from dealing with them.
