Apply for a trademark in Norway

To apply for trademark registration in Norway, you must file an application to the Norwegian Industrial Property Office (NIPO). We recommend that you read all the items below before you click the green button at the bottom of the page "Start or continue trademark application".

2. Types of trademarks

You must choose which type of trademark you wish to apply for, such as plain text or a logo/figure. This may affect whether it is possible to register your trademark or not, and may also affect what kind of protection you receive.

You may apply for several types of trademarks, but remember that you can only submit one mark per application.

The most common types are:

  • Word mark - this gives you the sole right to use one or more words. If you have the rights to a word mark, you can use it in different layouts.
    JOTUN
  • Figurative mark- gives you the sole rights to a figure/logo without text

  • Combined mark - gives you the sole rights to a particular combination of text and figure. In this case it is the whole mark you get rights to, and not necessarily to the logo or text by themselves.

You can only apply for registration of one mark at a time in one application.

To apply, click on the green button at the bottom left: "Start or continue trademark application".

Responsibility marks

Articles of gold, silver, or platinum which are marked with a standard of purity (hallmark), should also be stamped with a responsibility mark. You register your responsibility mark at the Norwegian Industrial Property Office.
