Searching for a trade mark

As part of our ongoing work to improve our digital services, we are implementing changes to the current trade mark search service.


There are three trade mark search services:

  • search by number
  • search by owner
  • search by word, phrase and/or image

The three search options will function the same but with changes to the look and style of the service, in particular the search by word, phrase and/or image.

Tabs have been introduced to categorise content, however based on customer feedback, you can also ‘display content without tabs’.


The change will take effect on 31 May 2017.

We would welcome further to continue to improve this service going forward.
