Apply for a trademark in Norway

To register your trademark in Norway, file an application for trademark registration to the Norwegian Industrial Property Office (NIPO). Companies and private individuals may apply.

Apply for a trademark with the application guide

Recommended for Norwegian residents, entrepreneurs and small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) operating in Norway.

By using the application guide, you can fill out and send your application, pay and receive a receipt, all in one operation. The receipt will also be available here afterwards. You get useful tips along the way and everything you do is saved.

Once you have filed your application, all further correspondence in the application process between you and NIPO will take place online. All correspondence will be available under "My Messages" and in your Altinn message box.

Have you already started an application or just sent one?

Go to "Applications - drafts or recently filed"

Applying for trademark registration abroad
