Trademark Opposition in Nigeria
Trademark renewal in Nigeria. After registration, a registered trademark is in force for 7 years. After the 7-year period, the owner of the trademark can opt to keep the trademark active by paying the appropriate renewal fees. Trademark renewal in Nigeria can be done every 14 years from the date of filing, indefinitely so long as the trademark continues to be used as a trademark in Nigeria.
NAFDAC Registration Agent: Why is it required? The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) is responsible for regulating and controlling the manufacture, import, export, distribution, advertising, sale, and use of food, drugs, cosmetics, medical devices, chemicals, and packaged water in Nigeria.
Any foreign company engaging in the manufacture, export, distribution, advertising, or sale of food, drugs, cosmetics, medical devices, chemicals, and packaged water in Nigeria must designate a NAFDAC Agent as its importer of record for the purpose of the NAFDAC registration.
Trademark opposition in Nigeria is the formal process by which a third party objects to the registration of a trademark in Nigeria.
Oppositions can be filed by any person who believes they will be adversely impacted or commercially damaged by the registration of a pending trademark application.
