Australian Trade Mark Filing Requirements

There are no forms in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore or Hong Kong that require the applicant’s signature at the time of filing. No Power of Attorney is required. In order to file a trade mark application in Australia, the following information is required:

Sound marks should be in MP3 (.mp3) or MPEG (.mpg) format and animated files must be in MPEG (.mpg) format. If the proposed trade mark includes a language other than English, a translation / transliteration is required.
